Saturday, December 7 : Illuminated Grand Parade and Fireworks

Châteauguay, November 20, 2019 – On Saturday, December 7, the magic of Christmas returns to Châteauguay as part of the “Châteauguay, a Christmas Story” event.

Spectacular parade

For the fourth consecutive year, the arrival of Santa Claus will be highlighted during the evening by an illuminated grand parade in which the famous Father Christmas will be preceded by his many Christmas helpers, dancers, circus artists and floats!

The parade’s departure will be at 6:45 pm in front of Saint-Joachim church (1 D’Youville Boulevard). The parade will move down D’Anjou and Maple boulevards and stop in the parking lot of the Bibliothèque Raymond-Laberge (25 Maple Boulevard), where everyone will be invited to a festive get-together and fireworks show, which will start after the parade’s arrival.

Fun evening of festivities

From 6:00 pm to 9:30 pm, the activities outside the library will include a choir singing Christmas carols and the antics of funny characters in costume! Free chicken stock or hot chocolate will be distributed and you can taste the best products of several local merchants in the gourmet area ($).

The public is invited to bring musical instruments (bells, drums, flutes and maracas), as well as flashlights and light devices, to illuminate both the site and the parade route and accompany the music.

Road closures

From 5:15 pm to 11:00 pm, some streets, including Arthur-Laberge bridge, will be closed to traffic. The closure schedule and various possible detours will be available on our website at www.ville.chateauguay.qc.ca/en/noel-2019.

To facilitate the travelling of our volounteers, exo will provide them a shuttle service on the evening of the event. To find out the modified bus routes and stops during the parade, see exo.quebec or call 450 698-3030.

All volunteers are welcome

If you would like to volunteer for this evening, please sign up with Francis Pépin at francis.pepin@ville.chateauguay.qc.ca or call 450 698-3129. Many assignments are available, notably security.

Lastly, the City would like to thank Royal Pyrotechnie for the fireworks show and thank Beauharnois and Mercier for their co-operation in addition to thanking the many schools and organizations in Châteauguay that contribute to the success of this wonderful tradition.
