If you plan to celebrate New Year's Eve in Quebec City, head straight to Grande Allée. You don't even have to wait for December 31, as all the action sets off a few days before. There actually is something for comers and goers—from black-tie events in the city's grand hotels to street parties. Don't forget about light shows, outdoor cafes with heated terraces, and a giant Ferris wheel.
A great live concert and fantastic entertainment occur in front of the Parliament building. The festivities fling at midnight on New Year's Eve and the countdown is followed by fireworks, offering a fantastic night for the visitors.
