The Massive Beach Party At Montreal's Parc Jean-Drapeau You Need To Attend This Summer

If there's one quintessential summer activity, it's a beach party. The thing is, getting to a beach is only feasible if you have a car, making a beach party kind of difficult to throw. Good thing we have some man-made beaches right in the city, like Parc Jean-Drapeau's Jean-Doré Beach, which is kicking off the summer season with a gigantic beach party.

A day-long celebration of all things summery, the Jean-Doré Beach opening party will have stuff for pretty much everyone, from all the twenty-nothings who just want to party a bit to younger kids who want fun of a different sort.

Live music, all sorts of beach games, a sand castle-building competition, prizes, food, and tons more. All that, with the magic that is a sunny day at the beach included, of course. Play in the water or just tan in the sun, it doesn't matter as long as you're having a good time.

The only minor downside to the beach-party is that there is a small cover charge. Still, when you consider that a car ride to a beach close to Montreal will cost you even more for gas (if you have a car, at all), and the admission price doesn't seem all that bad.

Besides, you can't put a price on beach fun, right? Okay, maybe you can but it definitely isn't more than the 9$ it'll cost you to get into this beach jam.

For more details on Jean-Doré Beach's opening party, going down on June 25th, head over to official Facebook event page.

As Canadian cities take the initiative to improve their transit systems and reduce their carbon footprints, Montreal has become one of the country's greenest metropolitan areas when it comes to transport, according to one ranking.
