Happy St. Jean Baptiste Day!

On June 24th, Québec residents will celebrate St. Jean Baptiste Day!  The day will be filled with parades, BBQs, patriotic speeches, and flag waving.

Children enjoy the party as much as anyone else

The day is a massive holiday in the province and it all began with the first French settlers and a bonfire along the banks of the St. Lawrence River.

Why not enjoy a poutine for the occasion? 

Happy La Fête nationale du Québec to our neighbours to the East!
