Thousands of people, enjoying blue skies and mild temperatures, flocked to the annual Grand Marché aux puces (flea market) held in the Montcalm district on June 2. This picture is of Rue Crémazie facing west and crossing Avenue Cartier. The 23rd edition of the event featured some 300 kiosks selling everything from jewelry to hot dogs. Proceeds from booth rentals go to support projects piloted by the local business development organization.
