Quebec City Hall Halloween Decorations 2010

Quebec City Hall Halloween Decorations 2010

by Elizabeth Davies

City Hall has out done itself with Halloween decorations this year!
Or in fact, to be more precise,  Mr. Victor Massé from the environment department is the genius behind this beautiful horror site.

As we all know, Quebec City is a vibrant historical, architectural and cultural city. Over the past few years Quebec has also become recognized for our  a flamboyant mayor, Mr. Regis Labaume. It is of little wonder that “his” front yard at City Hall portrays  his colourful personality!

Handfuls of tourists and citizens gather in awe of the spectacular Halloween décor! It provides remarkable settings for pictures. Come and see the giant witches, the black cats, enormous spiders on lamposts and walls, humongous bats sleeping in the tree, a particular brew with a washboard, and of course pumpkins of all shapes and colours fill the entrance. A frightful sight for young and old!

City Hall is located on des Jardins in the heart of Old Quebec at what is known as Place Hôtel de Ville, where the streets La Fabrique, des Jardins and de Buade join.  At this location you can also admire the breathtaking Basilica Notre-Dame-de-Québec Cathedral, the first French University:  Le Séminaire de Québec, the Anglican Holy Trinity Cathedral, the oldest hotel in Québec City: The Clarendon, and the impressive Price Building that happens to be the first skyscraper in Canada and the ONLY skyscraper within the fortifications!

Bring your camera!
