Les Passerelles aux Étoiles – A VIBRANT TRIBUTE to the poet CLAUDE GAUVREAU

As part of the 375th Montreal festivities, Les Passerelles aux Étoiles was a large gathering in the heart of the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve neighborhood to celebrate the work of Montreal poet Claude Gauvreau. The outdoor show began with a procession of citizens, a vocal ensemble, giant puppets and a fanfare on the Promenade Ontario before the procession unfolded on Place Simon-Valois.
