The New Year’s Eve street party on Grande-Allée, sponsored by the merchant’s association of Quebec City’s “Champs-Élysées” was everything they hoped it would be. The organizer of the event, André Verreault, estimated there were over 25,000 people present. The weather gods were kind as the temperature was mild that evening.
