During the commemoration of the 375th anniversary of Montreal; we could see the Giants (puppets) walking in the streets of Montreal and the huge crowd that accompanied them on their journey. These Giants came from France, were presented by a large street theater troupe, Royal de luxe, who did not want any barriers to separate the Giants from the public. They delimited their way just by ribbons of paper which the integrators of the troop themselves rolled and unwound as they passed. They presented the Little Giant and her dog, the man in diving-suit, the boat with the waves and a band of musicians. The event took place May 19th to 21st, 2017. Thousands of people of all ages took part in this unique experience. Everything went perfectly and if there was a little delay Saturday morning was just for safety because of the number of people present. The crowd completely covered the course of the Giants, which opened and closed in their passage, this approach with the public made the spectacle even more charming. The Giants woke up in the morning, they made two courses a day and they went to bed at about 6:00 pm with the buzzer of the man in diving-suit. They had stops in which the troop showed various movements of the giants. The final part of the course of the Little Giant, showed her sitting on a large boat; propelled by a truck of 53 feet, with the movements of the waves which were so real thanks to the presence of water ejected on the boat. A completely free attraction that was a real success.
