- As we continue to see a growth in popularity of the Quebec rainbow trend, more places seem to be getting on board with it.
- We've compiled a list of 11 spots in Quebec that have lit the colours of the rainbows over their buildings on a large scale.
- See photos below!
Usually paired with the now ubiquitous rainbows that decorate windows, housefronts, and chalk drawings on sidewalks and buildings, "Ça va bien aller" or "It's going to be okay" has become the 2020 rallying call. Some buildings around Quebec are taking the rainbow trend to another level of support with flashing light shows adorning some of the most popular and well-known spots.
The rainbow light symbols of hope, solidarity, and strength have been seen across the province lighting up everything from iconic buildings and hotels to marinas and even the Champlain Bridge.
Residents have been showing their appreciation by posting pictures and thanks on social media with the hashtag #cavabienaller.
With the latest news that three of Montreal's most popular festivals won't take place this summer, it's nice to see a city, a province, continue to come together for a few moments of cheer and beauty.
