This unicyclist got lots of “support” from a volunteer from the audience. Face painting, magicians, inflatable games, dancing and drums, hot dogs and much, much more kept everyone happy all afternoon. A concert in the evening at the bandstand by the Ensemble Gospel de Québec and fireworks on Grey Terrace rounded off the day’s festivities.
