Old Orchard road trip cancelled, overcrowded Sépaq parks, dancefloors closed for an undetermined time… These unfortunate events won’t get in the way of the Sanfaçon family! This Fall, they are putting on their tourists hat to explore their own city. Pranksters, casually unceremonious and bon vivant, these cheerful characters will set up shop in the heart of their neighbourhood to amuse passers-by!

Located alongside the Bellechasse bike path, these joyful characters are all about highlighting the talent of local artist Sacha Pérez del Solar, known for his colourful and surrealistic style.

These six self-supporting and interactive characters create a colourful, lively and dynamic journey. Approaching passers-by trigger a series of surprising and wacky sound and light effects that bring this fun and vivid family to life.

The project is part of the Safe active transportation circuits’ cultural program, financed through the Entente sur le développement culturel de Montreal and the Entente Réflexe Montréal agreements, made by the City of Montreal and the Government of Quebec.
