Fête Frissons

Presented by: Shenkman Arts Centre

Saturday, February 3, 2018 at 8:30 am to noon

Don’t fight the frost! Join us and celebrate a winter morning full of family fun! Enjoy music, face-painting, art-making, circus-arts, stories, dancing and outdoor fun in the snow! Savour the most important meal of the day - a $5 pancake breakfast prepared in front of your eyes by Orléans’ very own Cora’s Breakfast and Lunch. Master of Ceremonies, Official Town Crier and Storyteller Daniel Richer will guide us through the morning’s celebrations. And don’t miss the Winterlude Ice Hogs!
