In this article, you will get all information regarding Beaconsfield ho-ho-hosting CP Holiday Train and Beau Holiday Market
Beaconsfield residents will be getting into the Christmas spirit this weekend as the city plays host to a couple of festive public events: The Beau Holiday Market on Saturday and the popular CP Holiday Train stop on Sunday.
Les Amis du Village Beaurepaire, a local community group, has found an ideal location — Christmas Park — to hold this year’s Beau Holiday Market.
Dominique Godin of Les Amis said the market was moved to Christmas Park from the corner of Fieldfare Ave. and Beaconsfield Blvd. because it offers more space, along with the use of a heated park chalet where other activities can be held.
Godin, who also serves as city councillor for the area, said more than 40 merchants will be offering their wares at the market, which runs Nov. 26 from 3 to 7 p.m.
“We also have an alcohol permit this time around, and Duke and Devine’s Pub will be there to serve drinks and malt wine. We’re also going to doing some roasting of marshmallows in the outfield of the baseball field.”
Saturday’s holiday market marks the second major event organized this year by the non-profit Les Amis du Village Beaurepaire.
In May, Les Amis, under president Brian Miller, held a successful neighbourhood garage sale/porchfest event that raised funds for the local NOVA.
Godin said the non-profit Les Amis due Beaurepaire group is looking for ways to improve and expand the commercial and social offering in Beaurepaire Village. They will be asking for informal input from citizens at the Holiday Market.
“Brian Miller and I are going to have some boards up on the tennis court fence at Christmas Park and we’re going to be pitching ideas of what Les Amis would like to see in the town,” she said. “We’re talking about a branding for the town. What do we want to be about? What brings you to the village and what would get you here more?”
There will also be a photo booth with Santa. Photos are free but donations are accepted.
“Everything we make from photo donations goes to NOVA,” Godin noted. “We have other charities as well … the Montreal Children’s Hospital, Tweety Treats, Suitcases For Africa and I Am Heshima.”
Godin there will be a variety of vendors, including wood carvers, at this year’s market. “The Alexander Van Humboldt German School in Baie-D’Urfé is also coming and they’ll be making German Christmas decorations,” she said.
On Sunday, the festive CP Holiday train is scheduled to arrive at Beaconsfield train station at 8:20 p.m., after first making a stop in Montreal West.
A half-hour musical performance by Tenille Townes and Aysanbee is set to begin at 8:30 p.m.
The public might want to arrive early as the area becomes heavily congested with traffic.
The Beaconsfield train station is located at 104 Elm Ave., near the intersection of St. Charles Blvd. and Highway 20.
