Québec’s National Holiday

Everyone’s invited

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is happy to announce the annual festivities for Québec’s National Holiday, to be held Friday, June 24, beginning at 2 p.m. at Alexandre-Bourgeau Park, located at the southernmost end of Cartier Avenue.

“We are inviting everyone to take part in this festive event and enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities with family and friends,” says Mayor Trudeau.

A wide range of activities will be provided for children in the afternoon, including inflatable structures, circus workshops, a tour of Pointe-Claire Village to discover all its charms, and dance and hula hoop performances. A variety of musical shows will begin at 3 p.m, and young and old will be dazzled by the traditional fireworks at the end of the evening.

In addition to this varied programming, there will be a barbecue beginning at 2 p.m. as well as free swimming in the park swimming pool. What better way could there be to enjoy the celebrations?

Anyone who uses an environmentally friendly means of transportation to turn up to the event will receive a small gift, and as part of the same commitment to environmental responsibility, a water station will be available for those with a reusable water bottle.

“Join us for this festive event,” says Mayor Trudeau. “Let’s enjoy and celebrate Québec’s National Holiday together.”
