Fun ways to say goodbye to 2012

Once again, we are approaching the end of the year. Our EC Montreal students studied English and French very hard all year long and we would like to present them some fun ways to end 2012 and say hello to the new year 2013!

For music lovers

In the holiday tradition: hear the Notre-Dame Basilica organ in action on December 23-24 and 28-31 at 2 p.m. and join the Arte Musica choral concert “Let’s Sing Christmas! at the Montreal Fine Arts Museum on December 28-29, 2 p.m


Even the cold weather and snow can’t keep you inside? Perfect! Because Montreal offers lots to see and do outside all winter long. You can skate on a huge outdoor skating rink looking at picture perfect skyline of Montreal. You will also want to check out Noël sur l’avenue along Mont Royal Avenue east of Mont Royal Park, and the further-east Olympic Park Winter Village, where from December 22-24 and again December 27-31, kids and adults alike can go ice skating and sledding, hang out with Rudolph and the other reindeer, sing Christmas songs and more – there are even fireworks on December 31.

New Years’ Eve Grand Bal 

This is about as close as we will get to feeling like we are in Times Square for New Years eve, right here on home soil. The giant outdoor celebration attracts over 40,000 people with live entertainment and a spectacular fireworks presentation starting at 10pm on on New Year’s Eve at Place Jacques Cartier in Old Montreal. The featured house band this year is Raffy.
