THE PORT OF QUÉBEC INVITES YOU TO DISCOVER YOUR PORT CITY'S HISTORY THROUGH ITS HISTORICAL RALLY
Québec City, August 18, 2021 – The Québec Port Authority (QPA) is proud to launch today the 5th edition of its Historical Pedestrian Rally. For the first time ever, the Rally is being transformed into a digital edition in collaboration with MySmartJourney, a Québec-based company specializing in the creation of digital routes. The Rally is accessible to the general public on the Port's territory as of today and will continue until October 31, 2021.
An initiative of the QPA's employees, the Historical Rally aims to promote the Port's history by inviting people to explore the most significant historic sites, buildings and monuments scattered throughout its territory. This educational activity is part of the Port's program to promote its historical heritage and is the result of a valuable collaboration with the Port's partners, notably the Naval Museum of Québec and the Huron-Wendat Nation.
Participants are invited to visit the 14 interactive kiosks along the route, which are equipped with contactless, 100% web technology. Simply scan the QR code on each terminal with a cell phone to access a gold mine of textual, visual, and video content. At the end of the tour, participants will be invited to share a photo for a chance to win one of the prizes provided by our generous sponsors: Tourisme Wendake, La Traite restaurant, Excursions Maritimes Québec and Strøm Spa.
