Again this year, Halloween has been a great success. We welcomed many little monsters, wizards, witches, princes and princesses. We make it sure every year to take part in order to share this this major celebration of Canadian culture.
Before celebrating Halloween, the Juno Beach Centre always offers workshops for children. On October 25, children aged 4 to 8 came to the museum to create a beautiful Halloween garland. The kids were thrilled with their monster creations. Before returning, they could tried-out a dance to ward off the evils spirits.
On October 24th and 26th, youth from 8 to 14 years old participated a workshop with a artist Dominique Colas. First, they designed and decorated Canadian drums and spoons. Then they learned to play their instruments and rehearsed on the Juno Park for the Halloween parade of the town of Courseulles-sur-Mer held October 27th.
October 27 was the day to celebrate Halloween in the town of Courseulles-sur-Mer. La Maison de la Mer, Le Manège, l’OMAC all offered activities for children throughout the day. At the Juno Beach Centre, children and parents ( nearly 300 people !) entered into the magic forest of the Juno Witches..
At the end of the day, some of the museum’s staff met upthe children of the percussion workshops for the city parade. Fifteen children, armed with drums or spoons, guided by Dominique Colas, were at the beginning of the procession. A very nice moment that the children enjoyed.
We hope you had a nice Halloween day at Courseulles. TA bigh thank you to the children who came to see us on October 31 for another round of the magic forest. See you next year!
