As part of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the Canadian Confederation, children of the Principality are invited to a hockey game Monday, February 27, at the ice rink in Port Hercule.
The game between the Nice Aigles and the Monaco Barracudas starts at 5:30 pm, and the invitation is open to children in neighbouring towns as well, accompanied by their parents.
Thanks to the Skating Club of Monaco, this is an opportunity to introduce young people to a true Canadian passion, and the rules and pace of a demanding sport that requires technical mastery and instinct.
After the game, families can enjoy a traditional Canadian meal of tourtière (meat pie) or mouth-watering poutine (French fries and cheese curds drizzled with gravy), followed by a sponge cake dessert with maple syrup sauce, at the Brasserie de Monaco (€15 main course, dessert and drink). Canadian wines and beers will also be available.
With the support of Isabelle Bonnal, Director of Education, Youth and Sport, and Mr Jacques Pastor on behalf of Monaco Town Hall, the hockey game has been organised by the Consulate of Canada in Monaco, represented by Mr Marc Devito, Honorary Consul of Canada in Monaco, and in close collaboration with the Canadian Club of Monaco, chaired by Ms France Rioux. This sporting and festive event will launch a year of celebrations in the Principality to mark the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation.
