Noël en lumière
December 12th, 2017 to January 4th, 2018
From the middle of December, you can get into the holiday spirit by visiting the Christmas lights festival at Our Lady of the Cape Shrine in Trois-Rivières. This year, the renewed formula will include four major components: nativity scenes and madonnas on display in the restaurant, a program of events including recitals by different musical groups, and, of course, the illumination of the gardens and the Nativity play on the week-ends. From December 14 to January 5, 2014, the shrine's extensive gardens will glow with thousands of lights, the trees and trails overlooking the river being illuminated by more than 10,000 lights. In the Basilica, visitors will also discover a truly impressive village with more than 100 houses (of imposing size) and 500 miniature shrubs.
