January 6, 2014 — The soft glow of the tallest inclined tower in the world illuminates Montréal’s Olympic Park throughout the winter as the park’s vast outdoor Esplanade Financière Sun Life transforms into a winter wonderland of activities, food and drink until March 15, 2014.
Foodies will rejoice during First Saturdays at Olympic Park. On February 1 and March 1, the city’s gourmet food trucks roll up to the Esplanade Financière Sun Life and open their windows for business. Choose from a variety of gastronomic creations, including locally-sourced artisanal sausages, foie gras, Québec cheese dishes, tacos, crêpes and more.
In February, the Olympic Park still makes the most of snowy days by giving a boost to outdoor winter sports with its Winter Triathlon on February 7. On February 15 and 16, Barbegazi brings some of the best skiers, boarders, snowmobilers and lumberjacks to the site for competitive events and demonstrations and even welcomes non-pros to try their hand, all to a live soundtrack by local DJs.
