The Mega Garage Sale took place at the covered Confederation Annex building at Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park and featured people selling items at 60 tables. To the right UI share a moment with Police Station 9 Commander Sylvain Bissonnette, Public safety Director Jordy Reichson and Public Security Manager Michel Martel.
Public Safety Day took place at the parking lot of Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park and featured emergency vehicles for kids to climb into. Kids and adults were also able to speak to police officers, fire fighters, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) lifesavers, and other members of the safety services. The Montreal police verified car seat installations and bicycle helmets. Also, the blood service agency Héma Quebec had a a booth for people to check their blood type. There were even some old street signs for sale. Below I am trying to coax former Sir Walter Scott Avenue resident Arlene Smilovitch to buy this one.
The Public Works Carnival took place next to the Public Works Building and featured barbecue food, inflatable games for kids, arts and crafts, and more. Donations were accepted for the Montreal Children’s Hospital Foundation.
EcoAction Day took place next to the Public Works Building. Visitors learned about recycling and curb-side compost collection, and receive free garden compost. Kids learned about composting and how to make a zero-waste lunch.
