The city of Dorval will be hosting its annual Winter Festival this year. But with changes that reflect the current provincial guidelines in accordance with COVID 19.

There will be “a revamped edition during which residents will be able to enjoy various original activities and have fun indoors and outdoors, while respecting current health guidelines,” said Communication Officer Sébastien Gauthier.

Homeowners are encouraged to take part in a snowman building contest as well as “an outdoor escape game will be set up in two city parks and snow sculptures will appear throughout the municipality, much to the delight of outdoor enthusiasts.”
