After a long break because of COVID, Christmas festivals are back in force this holiday season. On Saturday, December 3, Saint-Louis-de-Gonzague hosted a Christmas market at the Catholic church. Visitors enjoyed free horse-drawn carriage rides through the town, and the church and adjacent hall were filled with artisans. Santa himself had a booth.
