La TOHU is proud to present the first edition of Les Lumières de Saint-Michel, in collaboration with the Fonds de solidarité FTQ. This event will bring together the population and partners of Saint-Michel to create luminous lanterns that will then be carried through the neighbourhood and Frédéric-Back Park in a large nocturnal parade that will end on TOHU's public square TOHU on June 17.

From April to June 2023

To make the parade as bright as possible, we must first create beautiful lanterns! The theme for this first edition: the world of insects. You are invited to workshops to make lanterns of all sizes. The workshops will take place over 8 weeks, starting on April 16, and will culminate on June 17 during a big citizen parade!
