At the end of each year, Monaco's Port Hercule, located at Quai Albert 1er, welcomes the Christmas village of the Principality around the swimming pool which has become an ice rink for the occasion. It consists of many areas for relaxation and restoration. Many events punctuate, for the greatest happiness of all, this month of festivities.
Monegasque animations at the end of the year
From early December until the end of the first week of January the area, occupied during the F1 Grand Prix by the stands and stands of spectators, attracts many Monegasques often accompanied by their children. The rink allows the most experts to spin on the ice, under the admiring gaze of spectators. A ferris wheel sits at the west end, in the sector of the scorpion bend, offering a view of the whole carnival while a carousel occupies the other end towards Saint Devote in front of the automobile club.
Many food stands will allow you to satiate mountain specialties, seafood, grilled meat etc ... not to mention all kinds of sweets. Craftsmen and stalls in small wooden chalets also offer their products for sale culinary as well as clothing or artistic.
Musical entertainment, small theatrical performances, treasure hunts, children's make-up workshops, shows on ice and the great New Year's Eve party celebrating the New Year's Eve make the place more enjoyable for everyone.
