“St-Jean Baptiste celebration are a family event open to all. There will be giant games for fun, face painting, a petting zoo, music, crafts and a fire truck,” said ACFA regional director Josée Côté, adding that all of the events are free except food trucks which will be on hand. “We will conclude these celebrations with a performance by Chantal Marie and l’Onde Sonore.”
