Canadian Grand Prix--Cocktail and Dinner Party with F1 celebrities
When our neighbor to the north hosts F1 in mid June there is reason to celebrate. Fans descend onto Montreal by the masses diving head first into the fanfare, parties, pageantry and high rolling that inevitably go hand in hand with Formula One racing. And they love it!
The circuit was built in 1967 on a man-made island in the middle of the St. Lawrence River and was named in honor of Gilles Villeneuve. The F1 Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal combines a mixture of slow and fast corners and demands a lot of the engines as well as the braking system. As for entertainment, Montreal literally turns itself over to the Canadian Grand Prix each year. A great city for night owls, when the sun goes down, options for night time revelry are abundant in Montreal. From upscale to budget bars, to popular districts for dance clubs like on Rue St Laurent, this city has it all! Visit the Old Port and see a Cirque du Soleil show! You won`t be disappointed.
Downtown Montreal is home to McGill University and shopping venues, while Old Montreal contains a plethora of historic buildings, the oldest of which date back to the 17th century. Outdoor opportunities, including a network of cycling and walking paths through one of the city`s many parks. For the more adventurous, river surfing is popular on the Saint Lawrence River, while kayaking opportunities are available on the Lachine rapids.
While the actual race is about two hours long the brouhaha emanating from those 120 minutes easily covers a week. Practice, qualifying, street fairs, vintage cars, live shows, choice people watching... there`s more than enough action on and off the track that make the Canadian Grand Prix a fan favorite!
And since Montreal is a no-brainer when it comes to blending culture, fun and racing, we can`t think of a better way to spend the second weekend of June than at the 2017 Canadian Grand Prix!
