What was with all the parties?

All the major hotels were hosting parties with what looked like local Quebecois students. I couldn't tell if they were high school or college. They were all dressed up and there were stretch limos too. The girls were in cocktail dresses or evening gowns; they looked hot, but awkward. In fact, everyone looked uncomfortable, like they were itching to get out of the formal clothes and into comfortable street clothes. And then go clubbing or something.

Were these proms? Graduations? Why in late June? What was going on? :confused:

You got it !

Also you got St-Jean Baptiste !

Just in case for some that don't know what's going on at this time of the year.

June is not only the end of schools...

We start June with the Grand prix, then all the festivals starts (Jazz is coming up), we have all the fireworks, then you can get a 2 weeks holiday just by taking 4 days on your holidays because we have back to back holiday (24th June and 1st of July).

Lots of people take part or their vacation at this time.

Plus it's moving time that will climax next week-end before July 1st.

Again, in case some of you don't know. In Quebec the majority of leases ends July 1st. So it feels as if half of the population is moving.

Thus creating new friends and... having fun.

Many, many other activities are going in July like all the dancing competitions.

Add the celebrations in Quebec city about the 400th this year and you get a lot of people on the move this summer
