Tables set, the diners waved their dinner napkins at the appointed hour to signal the beginning of the elegant all-in-white picnic.

A wave of 2,200 elegantly dressed diners washed up onto Quai Paquet in Lévis on Aug. 2 for the ninth annual Dîner en Blanc. White dresses, white suits and hats, white tablecloths, even white picnic baskets, were de rigueur for this chic supper alfresco. Even Lévis’ Mayor Gilles Lehouillier attended the party.
