      Montreal’s Italian Week: Day Six

      Aug. 15, 2012

      Bocce was on the mind for a small contingency of Italian Montrealers tonight as the first day of a three-day bocce tournament got under way at Delorme Park in St Leonard. Part of Montreal’s Italian Week, this week’s tournament is a competition amongst old friends. Many of the competitors and their fans gather throughout the year – in the park on a warm summer night and at the indoor bocce court at the Leonardo da Vinci Center the rest of the year.

      The competition is fierce, the stakes are high (bragging rights), and when all else fails there’s a warm cup of espresso and a homemade biscotti waiting on the sidelines.

      The bocce tournament continues August 16 and 17, from 7:00PM onwards, at Delorme Park.

      Montreal’s Italian Week continues until August 19. To view the full program please visit
