Carifiesta Parade smaller this year
Montreal's 37th Carifiesta Parade took to the streets on Saturday.
The parade attracted about 5,000 people — a modest turnout compared to the event in previous years.
- René-Lévesque Boulevard is closed between Guy and Alexandre Streets until 5 p.m. Saturday.
The procession started at the corner of René-Lévesque Boulevard and Guy Street, ending at Phillips Square.
A family-oriented "Carifiesta cooldown" event will take place on Sunday at Jean-Drapeau Park.
