Yesterday was Carrefour Laval’s Christmas tree illumination ceremony.
Families and friends were invited to gather at the Carrefour Laval to come and enjoy a variety of entertainment, music and activites.
The event was ending with a countdown, leading to the lighting of the large Christmas tree, located in the garden near entrances 3 and 4.
It all started around 5:30 p.m., with already several people on site to enjoy choirs and activities.
However, many people have shared, on social media, their frustration and/or disappointment concerning the tree’s illumination time.
The event’s announcement was made rather late, according to many Laval residents. Also, some of those people are mentioning it’s only once there that they learned, thanks to the security deployed, that the lighting of the tree wasn’t scheduled until around 7:30 p.m., which they’re considering too late for young children.
Others are also claiming it was very difficult to hear the choir due to the mall’s ambient noise.
