The Festival began in 2007 and the resounding success of the celebration has transformed it over the years into a 3-day festival. A firefighter’s race will take place on May 31st at the Nature centre and on June 2nd at Centropolis, and the proceeds are donated to the Fondation des pompiers du Québec pour les grands brûlés, the only organization in Quebec that raises funds to support the care and assistance of burn victims.
