There Are Free Disco Skating Nights With Funky Light Projections In Montreal This Month

It's the dead of winter in Montreal. Bars are closed. Where can one get their freaking disco on in Montreal right now? The answer: the skating rink in Parc La Fontaine where free disco skating nights are taking place on Friday nights throughout the month.

Funky light projections take place every evening on the ice at dusk as a collaboration between Le bassin des merveilles, Pépinière Espaces Collectifs, MAPP MTL and UQÀM interactive media students.

But Fridays are when the projections are disco-themed — plus you can get hot drinks and sit by the fire as you warm up in heated kiosks.

Here's when the warm-up kiosks and hot drinks are available this month:

  • Friday, February 11th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (disco-themed projection)
  • Saturday, February 12th from 1:30 pm to 6 p.m.
  • Friday, February 18th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (disco-themed projection)
  • Saturday, February 19th from 1:30 pm to 6 p.m.
  • Friday, February 25th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. (disco-themed projection)
No skates? No problem. You can rent them at the nearby trailer on Émile-Duploye, which is open Monday through Sunday until 10 p.m. A pair of ice skates cost $10.87 for two hours and you can also rent a helmet or get your blades sharpened.
If you're planning on skating, check the ice conditions before you head out because it might not be open. That said, you can always just hang out in one of the warm-up kiosks, enjoy the disco music and disco projections and boogie down.
