Family activities, shows, and fireworks

Québec’s National Holiday

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere invites residents to come together to celebrate Québec’s National Holiday on Sunday, June 24, at Alexandre-Bourgeau Park.

“Activities are organized for the whole family throughout the day. These festivities are the perfect opportunity to have fun with family and friends. Everyone young and old can enjoy the variety of entertainment we have to offer,” stated Mayor Belvedere.

Before meeting up for a picnic, family and friends are invited to share a relaxing moment at the park swimming pool, which will open its doors for free swimming starting at 1 p.m.

Starting at 2 p.m., children can enjoy a wide variety of activities planned for them, including inflatable structures, face painting, and circus workshops. The celebrations continue with music, circus, dance, and hula-hoop performances for all ages. Everyone is invited to take part in a Zumba activity, a dance workout set to lively music, then discover or rediscover their favourite shops in the Village.

This year, the traditional fireworks show will be presented in a brand-new way: for the first time, the launching platform will be installed on a barge on Lake Saint-Louis. This dazzling fireworks display is sure to amaze spectators.

The City also invites everyone young and old to share in its vision focused on sustainable development by coming to the festivities using an environmentally friendly means of transportation, whether it is active or public transportation. Everyone who helps protect the environment will receive a small gift. In the same vein, a water station will be available for everyone with a reusable water bottle.

“Québec’s National Holiday is a time for everyone to get together, celebrate, and relax in good company. Let’s enjoy it together,” said Mayor Belvedere in conclusion.
