After a little more difficult years, tourists are on the rendezvous in Centre-du-Québec, during this construction holiday period.
On Wednesday morning, the lines were long at the Village québécois d'antan. Hundreds of people were eagerly waiting for their places to enter. After two years of absence, the enthusiasm was felt for this new season. The atmosphere is festive under the theme of the 1920s.
“We are really happy to welcome people from all over Quebec to come and rediscover the Village québécois d'antan,” said the director of communications, Stéfany Duguay, with a smile.
However, at mid-season, the figures do not reach those of the pre-pandemic years.
“We did not return to the traffic we were used to having before the pandemic.
The fact that people can travel outside has an impact,” she added.
For his part, the director of Tourisme Drummondville, Yanick Gamelin, is also positive.
