The route generally stays the same every year. Here is a map of the route Marche de Noël aux flambeaux 2017. The parade begins at 7 pm at Parc des Compagnons at the corner of Mont-Royal and Cartier, proceeds through Mont-Royal and ends at 7:30 pm at Parc La Fontaine.

A handful of choirs and a host of holiday-inspired characters dot the candlelit procession, walking alongside the participants as they sing. The candles, a must have for anyone participating, are sold on the site for $ 2 each. Or instead of paying $ 2, the organizers also accept stuffed animals, children’s books, toys, and non-perishable food as a donation in exchange for a candle. Candle sales proceed and donations traditionally go to the Moisson Montréal food bank.

Like I said before, anyone can join. This is a great experience for families, especially as children easily get used to the holiday spirit by holding their candles and singing along with the passing choirs as they anticipate the evening fireworks at the end of the parade.

And it is affordable. Other than the purchase of candles and voluntary donations, no other costs are incurred. To ensure you have enough time to secure your sail, try to arrive at the site at least 20 minutes early.
