It is between Sanguinet and Saint-Dominique streets that Quebecers can stroll through a “playful, poetic, festive and immersive” route that honors Quebec.
Literature, songs, poems, tales and legends, nursery rhymes and theater were used to present the beauty of the province.
Presented by Hydro-Québec, the parade is made up of nine immersive tableaux that pay homage to “this language with a thousand accents that makes us proud and defines our identity”.
“An appointment not to be missed that will touch, amuse and delight young and old!”, indicated the organizers of the activity by means of a press release.
