Free Things To Do In Montreal This March

It's winter and the Hydro bill is real. So I appreciate a free event wherever I can find one. And March is a weird month... it's not spring but sometimes it's nice enough out to pretend it's not still totally winter.

So here's a good variety of events happening in Montreal this March that are free or only require a donation for entrance. (It doesn't count as real spending if it's tax deductible, okay? Save your receipts.) Don't break the bank this month, we got you covered.
