Sunday Events (Rain or Shine): SERVE Volleyball Tournament, Orchestrated Film Classic

Posted by Andrés / August 6, 2011

20110806_servevolleyball.jpgThe forecast for tomorrow is uncertain: 40-60% chance of scattered thundershowers. Don't let this uncertainty stop you from enjoying some of the tail-end summer activities in the city. Located just near the tam-tams at Jeanne-Mance park, on the East side of Parc Avenue, are the city's public volleyball courts. For its sixth year, Head & Hands has organized SERVE, a volleyball tournament in which about 15 bars/bistros are competing to raise funds for The Sense Project.

The Sense Project was initiated after the Quebec government pulled sex education from the secondary curriculum in 2005 as part of its widespread, and crumbling, reform. The money raised from events such as SERVE help to pay for programs in individual Quebec high schools and ensure that students are being properly educated on the safety measures and repercussions of sexual activity.

SERVE has been rained on before, but that hasn't stopped the tournament. Regardless, if you're looking for a roof above your head, make sure to catch the last of the Fantasia Film Festival's fare, including a live orchestrated screening of The Phantom of the Opera (1925) starring Lon Chaney. Thirty musicians headed by Gabriel Thibaudeau will accompany the B&W silent film, playing at Place des Arts. (More info)

So, in short, you have little reason to fret the possibility of rain. Gear up appropriately and check out at least one of the two events above; though, there's plenty of time for both.
