Mondial des Cidres de Glace

This weekend (February 8 to 10) is the 6th edition of the Mondial des Cidres de Glace, in Rougemont.
24 producers from Quebec will be there to introduce you to their products.  I've already tasted a few of them because I have a serious love affair with ice cider, so believe me when I say you want to go to the Mondial!  It's a very efficient way to taste a lot of ciders, without breaking the bank (and your liver)

In addition to ice cider tasting, to soak up a bit of the alcohol between tasting, there will be a food fair. Local producers will offer poultry, cheese, bread and pastries, honey, fudge, maple products and more.

New this year, two shows will conclude Friday and Saturday evening.  Sylvain Cossette (Friday) and Luce Dufault (Saturday) will offer a performance at 9:30pm.  Tickets are 36$ (taxes included) and places are limited.
*update: the heated venue only has 250 seats. Tickets are on sale on Admission or at Rougemont's City Hall (cash only), at 61, chemin de Marieville.  450-469-3790.

Rougemont municipality will also offer a display of fireworks and music, Friday only, at 8:30pm. Guess which day I'm going? :P

Add to that play areas, live ice sculpting, animation, tasting for kids (non-alcoholic, duh!) and the Mondial promises to offer a good time to all!

Pictures and verdict will be posted sometime next week.
