I heard the Arcadia Festivals are interesting and fun to attend.

Comment was by Marianne on July 26, 2013 at 10:36pm

Just a tidbit:  it seems Quebec city is definitely on the map we had Paul McCartney last week on the Plaines d'Abraham (open air) and tomorrow our own 'dear !' Céline.  Quebec city has so many festivals over the summer, so many shows, it's hard to keep count; but the most interesting ones (not the two I mentionned), are expensive.  Paul and Céline tickets are above 100$

FANTASTICAL SCENES AT THE MONTRÉAL BOTANICAL GARDEN

From Smithsonian:

EarthPerhaps you have heard of topiary, the decorative pruning of shrubs into animals and other shapes. But, what about mosaïculture? The term was new to me when I read the definition that organizers prescribe to at Mosaïcultures Internationales, a competition staged every three years at a park or municipal garden somewhere in the world. “Mosaïculture,” says the competition’s website, “is a refined horticultural art that involves creating and mounting living artworks made primarily from plants with colourful foliage (generally annuals, and occasionally perennials).”

The process works a bit like this. To start, horticultural artists build metal frames for their sculptures. LemursThey cover the frames with soil netting and then plant seeds of different flora in that soil, much like a ceramicist lays tiles in a mosaic. The task draws on an artist’s skills in a variety of different areas, notes Mosaïcultures Internationales—”on sculpture for its structure and volume, on painting for its palette, and on horticulture in its use of plants in a living, constantly changing environment.” Grown in greenhouses during the spring months, the artworks, when fully grown, are installed outdoors, in parks and gardens. This summer, about 50 sculptures and reliefs, consisting of some 22,000 species, dot a 1.3-mile path through the Montréal Botanical Garden, site of Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal 2013.

More here. (Note: For dear friends Zoovia and Saleem Hamiduddin who share a passion for topiary)

Derailed train in Lac Mégantic, Québec:

an unmanned train (the driver was having a ten minutes nap) malfunctionned (the brakes) and went down a hill and exploded in downtown Lac Megantic right next to a terrasse where people were having fun and a drink.  The whole downtown is destroyed and as to now the number of deceased is up to 19 and will go up as not all are identified.  The area is cordoned off and an investigation is taking place. (by the way the wagons were full of oil).

Since the beginning of his campaign Obama' secure vehicule in which he travels  has been built in Quebec by the Prevost enterprise.  Since 1982, american presidents use Prevost vehicles because of their top security level (and rock stars too ...).

This is the gay pride festival in Quebec city this week-end, a long week-end,  monday is a holiday and the atmosphere is very festive and so many people participate.  Saturday we have Madonna on the Plaines d'Abraha and thousands are going there even if it's very expensive.  It's outdoor but a beautful night.

Did you know (it doesn't seem to have been covered by the media but I heard about it and saw a photo on FB) that, I think yesterday, there was a massive student demonstration in Mexico city (hundreds of thousands ?

Democracy in Motion: The Student Protests in Quebec Beyond...

by Garry Leech – May 2, 2012 

For the past eleven weeks, thousands of university students have been protesting in the streets of Montreal demanding that the Quebec provincial government not only rescind its plans to raise tuition rates but that it provide free post-secondary education. The mayor of Montreal, Gerard Tremblay, has responded to the mostly peaceful protests by declaring that it is unacceptable “that the reputation of Montreal be stained on the international scene.” By also referring to the vandalism of businesses in downtown Montreal, the mayor made evident that he was more concerned with the reputation of Montreal in the eyes of the international business community than the potential perception of the city as an example of democracy in motion.
