A clown on stilts led the way, paddling a birch-bark canoe. Using a loudspeaker to be heard blocks away, he brought curious spectators out onto their balconies or down to the street to join the clamorous parade.

A cacophony of drums and various instruments, strollers and noisy people clowned along 3e Avenue in Old Limoilou a little after 10 a.m. on Sunday, May 17. The majority of the paraders were well under the age of majority. However, they let their parents come along to push the strollers, encouraging them to be silly and make as much racket as possible.
