Quebec City Turns 405

Quebec City Turns 405

Quebec turned 405 years young on Wednesday. As a tradition, the celebration started with a Mass at 10 am where mayors of two ally cities, Charlotte and Brussels were invited. The dignitaries paraded to the statue of Samuel de Champlain where they placed flowers. For the occasion, Regis Labeaume took some time to read passages from the memoires du fondateur, where the beauty of the place is described.

After the ceremony, the City launched the book Les maires de Québec depuis 1833 by historians Rejean Lemoine and Louise Côté and also offered the city medal to business man, Michel Dallaire from Cominar for his great contribution and development of the city.

The festivities continued throughout the day with a family picnic at the Espace 400e and a special toast.

The day ended with fireworks in the evening.
