Hundreds of people lined up on the Dufferin Terrace for a piece of this giant Canada Day birthday cake provided by the Château Frontenac.


After a leisurely stroll through Battlefields Park, Jay Ouellet captured scenes from the Family Day activities around the Edwin Bélanger bandstand. Flying high!!

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. 



Lessons in how to make balloon animals were very popular. 



This puppeteer kept held these children wrapt attention with his improvisation theatre.
