You’re invited to a Garden Party at the Casino!
Summer is just around the corner, with all the great things that implies: sunshine, hot weather, summer vacation, and, of course, garden parties! Thursday through Saturday until June 22, the Casino du Lac-Leamy is hosting a Garden Party to welcome summer in style.
The grass really is greener at the Casino du Lac-Leamy, and that’s an ideal setting for the region’s liveliest Garden Party. From garden gnomes and flower beds to fun yard games and prize draws around the BBQ, the Casino du Lac-Leamy is definitely party central!
As I step through the entrance of the Casino, I see that the decor is summery to the max: there’s a huge RV parked near the doors and an adorable, sparkling Mini Cooper convertible inside. More than just garden decorations, these two vehicles are among the 400 prizes to be won at Quebec casinos during the Surprise Pop games! Who knows? The giant BBQ may hold the lucky key that will allow you to open a box containing one of these prizes. And take it from me: attending the draw is (almost) as much fun as participating!
It's time to play!
Any self-respecting garden party includes activities! And the Casino’s is no exception: not only can you play popular yard games, some are even combined with the famous Atari video game! Connect with your inner child by playing Atari Kaboom, or show off your skateboarding tricks at the Atari Electro Skate. If you prefer more social games, head for the rear courtyard, where you’ll find a giant Connect 4 and a beanbag toss! Choosing to leave the athletic activities to professionals, I decide to flex my logic with a short session of Connect 4, at which I once ruled. After an intense game, I can officially say I haven’t lost my touch!
A light refreshment ?
And now, a little quiz: what’s the official drink of summer? The delicious answer can be found at Bar 7: I’m talking about sangria! With a choice of pink sangria, with hints of melon, cranberry or apricot, or blue sangria, with peach, pineapple and citrus notes, the Casino has covered all the bases. It’s the ideal cocktail to sip as you strike a pose with other guests and the true stars of this Garden Party—the garden gnomes.
Brandishing my colourful pinwheel, I leave with a vastly increased yearning for summer, but until then, there’s no problem, because the Garden Party continues until June 22 at the Casino du Lac-Leamy!
