Target to Illuminate Quebec City with an Enchanted Night in the Park Featuring Nadja and Yves Lambert
MISSISSAUGA (November 29, 2012) — Target announced today that it will stop in Quebec City as part of its cross-country holiday tour. Taking over the Jardin de Saint-Roch on Monday, December 3, from 4:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., Target will unveil an enchanted holiday park, created by the imaginative genius of Thomas Pintal. The park will be filled with theatre, lights and music designed to bring together Quebec City families to celebrate the holiday season.
“The Target Holiday Road Trip gives us a unique opportunity to get to know our future guests,” said Livia Zufferli, director, Marketing, Target Canada. “Target is well known for our innovative partnerships and it’s a privilege to team up with local talents Thomas Pintal, Nadja and Yves Lambert to create a festive experience for families in Quebec City.”
“I am thrilled to be partnering with Target to create this enchanted park experience for families to enjoy in Quebec City,” said Thomas Pintal, director of production for the event. “We’ve truly created a unique evening that will get everyone in the holiday spirit, and with the illumination of festive shapes and colours, a magical winter carrousel and special performances, this is sure to be a night to remember.”
The evening will include the storytelling expertise of Yves Lambert, highly regarded for being a trailblazer in folk music, and the voice of singer, Nadja, who will spread cheer with her renditions of famous holiday songs. Guests of the event will also take centre stage becoming part of the performance once it begins.
