June 3, 2016 / Posted by SDC Vieux-Montréal
A place to relax and enjoy life right in the middle of the Saint-Paul Circuit
The F1 green zone will be established on Saint-Paul West Street between Saint-Nicolas Street and Evans-Court Street thanks to a wonderful green layout and many bistros, perfect for a midafternoon break from all the craziness. You will be able to learn a lot about local businesses as they will set up booths and offer fun activities to passersby. You will also be able to enjoy many cocktails and small bites, to participate in many contests and, most importantly, take the time to relax. What you can expect:
