City of Montreal: Montreal High Lights Festival-More
than 4000 people present at City Hall for the All

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 27 2005) - The Mayor of Montreal,
Mr. Gerald Tremblay, and the Chairman of the City council, Mr. Marcel
Parent, are pleased to have welcomed 4004 Montrealers to this second All
Nighter at City Hall.

Everyone enjoyed this great party. The various dances made young ones
and older ones happy. Thousands of visitors were present to initiate
themselves to the samba, the waltz or the tango and it was a good
opportunity for them to discover the different cultures that are present
in Montreal.

Besides the dances from around the world, many citizens came to watch
the sound and lights show that illuminated City Hall.

The Mayor of Montreal and the Chairman of the City council wish to thank
all the Montrealers that came to the different shows and participated to
the activities and congratulate the organisers of the Montreal High
Lights Festival All Nighter.
