Gatineau, Quebec, August 9, 2006 — The Canadian Children’s Museum, at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, invites you to its Mexican Cantina on August 19 and 20. What could be more refreshing than Aguas Frescas (juice made with water and fresh fruit) on a hot summer day? Join the festivities at the Museum, where you can make your own Agua Fresca at our Mexican Cantina workshop, using lime, cantaloupe, strawberries, pineapple and watermelon. You can also make Flores de Papel (paper flowers), a decoration that Mexicans sport at fiesta time! Come join us for the most refreshing fiesta of the summer!
