Quartier Petit-Champlain celebrates Christmas


A toy soldier amuses this little girl at Place Royale.  

Place Royale and the streets in the Petit-Champlain district in the lower town of Old Quebec are bustling with activity in the days leading up to Christmas. Until Christmas Eve, children can meet Santa Claus and have their photo taken with him in his kingdom at Parc Félix-Leclerc, choirs will be roving the neighbourhood, and many costumed characters can be seen.
