They say that everyone loves a parade. However, I'm hard pressed to find anyone to agree with this. Although we had friends over to watch, we all agreed that the only reason we were watching was because of our prime viewing spot on the balcony. It was pretty podunk all in all, a few marching bands, a couple of floats and lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of flags. Don't believe me? Check this.
In fact the most impressive part was the clean up crew following the end of the parade. A fleet of street sweepers, sidewalk vacuums, dumptrucks and the like scoured the street.
Once the parade finished, we spent the rest of the afternoon yakking on the patio, drinking beer and finally pizza. Quite delightful all in all. I took several videos. But this one sums up the podunkness and also shows you some traditional Quebecer music. (I always think it's kind of a bluegrass/folk style. Almost country.)
