It’s a celebration of summer called Naturally, Ste-Anne and it takes place in Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue Saturday, Sept. 16. The forecast is promising — sunny skies and 26° C. 

Sidewalk sales; an outdoor market; free docking for boats; lake cruises; live music; circus performers; sidewalk terraces and an open swim at John Abbott College to cool you off are just a few of the activities on the roster.

The third edition of the event also offers free shuttle service to local attractions including the Ecomuseum, Morgan Arborteum, the Mac Paddle Shack and the Bellevue Observatory. Each destination on the shuttle route has its own program of activities planned for the day.

On the same day, the town is hosting Ecology Day with conferences on honey bees and Monarch butterflies, Monarch butterfly releases and draws for prizes.
