A scarf? A hat? A pair of gloves? What accessory with Irish colours will you be wearing to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Québec City this year?

A highlight of the four days when Québec City goes green, the parade on March 23 promises to deliver plenty of sights and sounds! A great family outing, this event is now part of the festive traditions that enrich our city. Enlivened by historical re-enactors, artists, the ‘little people’ and leprechauns, it will also be an opportunity to recall the invaluable contribution of the Irish community to our society.

To one and all, a very happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Régis Labeaume
Mayor of Québec City
