When Giants Visit Montreal

I’d been worried I wouldn’t see Little Girl-Giant and her Dog when they visited Montreal in May for Montreal’s 375th anniversary because the crowds were so huge. But the puppets dwarfed people and buildings.

About thirty people manipulate each puppet. Her uncle, the Deep-Sea Diver, came too but I didn’t manage to see him.

It takes a massive machine and about 30 people to manipulate each puppet. Their heads turn, their eyeballs move, their eyes blink… The dog’s ears twitch, his tongue comes out, he pants, his tail wags… And they look right at you! They are actually very very spooky!

  1. Hi Susie, I noticed your comment about train travel on Judy’s post and popped over for a visit.
    We’re visiting Canada soon and are spending a few days in Montreal so I’m looking forward to reading more about your city. Interesting to know it is celebrating its 375th birthday. Hopefully there will be something on while we are there too.

    • The 375th celebrations are now all over but there is plenty of stuff to enjoy. You might like to look up ‘Montreal festivals’ and also what’s on at the Old Port while you’re here. If you’d like to contact me via my contact page with your dates, I’ll check around for interesting stuff on. Also check out Maison St Gabriel – it’s one of my favourite places to visit and is a very lively introduction to Montreal history. I see you’re a quilter – there was a great quilt show this last weekend!
