  • La Magie de Noël

    This Christmas magic event hosted by the City of Rivière-du-Loup brings together in one place all activities related to Christmas, presented by community organizations. Starting in November, during the Noël chez nous festival, residents and visitors are invited to discover the talent of our own little elves, who spare no effort to create Christmas magic in the streets and people’s hearts.

    In his first public appearance of the year, Santa Claus, decked out in red to contrast with his long white beard, takes part in the majestic parade along Lafontaine Street. You may even catch a glimpse of him doing his Christmas shopping in the local craft market.

    Rivière-du-Loup is a little closer than travelling to the North Pole…

    Next edition: November 2017 to January 2018
