FREE 50TH ANNIVERSARY EVENTS
The Festival d’été de Québec is celebrating its grand 50th Anniversary with an epic, retrospective exhibition of the Festival’s history and three original street performance shows with a unique French flair. The festivities will include:

-50 Summers of FEQ, an exhibition presenting photos, news articles, posters, and other mementos culled and curated from the archives of the past 49 Festivals. The collection will be on view to the public at the Parc de l’Amérique-Française from late June through the end of July.

-At Parc de l’Amérique-Française, L’orchestre d’homme-orchestres, which creates musical instruments from everyday objects, will delight audiences every night before the Festival concerts with music performed on a wild assemblage of recycled materials by its forty-plus members. The show salutes Canada 150, which coincides with the 50th Anniversary of Festival d’été de Québec.

-The French street theatre troupe Plasticiens Volants have created a show especially for the Festival’s 50th Anniversary, with their stunning and impressive large installations. Part puppet, part kite, its magical, colossal characters will float overhead and mingle with the crowd in an original dramatic and musical production. The mobile street performances begin around 11 PM, and travel from the Grande-Allée--—one of Québec’s main thoroughfares-- to the Coeur du FEQ, the Festival’s central rendezvous, for a grand finale, July 7 – 9.

-The Transe Express troupe of street performers has cooked up a collection of trapeze artists, violinists, and an opera singer for a stunningly inventive show combining theater, acrobatics, and music, all performed while suspended from a giant mobile.  The production’s soundtrack, Lâcher de Violons, is composed of memorable musical moments from the Festival’s history. These overhead performances will start around 11 PM at the Grande-Allée and end at Coeur du FEQ from July 13 – 15.

adidas Originals | Winter AF 1.3 PK & AF 1.4 PK | Launch Pack
 Inspired by the unpredictable weather conditions of winter, adidas Originals introduces two new silhouettes this season designed to stand up to whatever the colder season has to offer, without sacrificing visual effect.
 First up is the AF 1.3 PK, a high-top silhouette inspired by Germany’s elite tactical police unit, the GSG 9. The shoe blends modern aesthetics with a range of technical elements to create a striking silhouette with practical considerations. The shoe’s full Primeknit upper is structured by coated overlays for waterproofing, reinforced by a weather-resistant lining for protection against the elements. This is strengthened further by an insulation sock-liner and full-length lacing system, finished with embroidered 3-stripes marks and essential branding details. This is then placed atop a rugged hiking outsole for a perfect heavy-duty look.
 Accompanying the high-top iteration, the AF 1.4 PK translates th…
