Every year, St.-Lazare holds a very successful celebration of La Fête Nationale in Bédard Park. Typically more than 15,000 visitors attend. This year, for the first time, there will be an artistic component to the festivities. Thirty local visual artists will participate in an Allée des Arts, each housed in their own tent, and each prepared to show their work and to explain their techniques. Many items will be for sale.
I am very pleased to have been invited to take part in this event, which will run from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, June 23 and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, June 24. A special first prize award will be announced at 5 p.m. on Sunday, decided by the visitors to the event. Of course, there will be lots of musical entertainment and the traditional fireworks.
So, please think about attending this event, and if you do, come by to say Hello! For more information about the event, please go to www.ville.saint-lazare.qc.ca/fetesdesaintlazare
