Well, friends, Victoria Day - or National Patriots' Day, as it's sometimes known is Quebec - is right around the corner.
This year, it's happening on Monday, May 22, and honestly, it looks like it's going to be a whole bunch of fun. I know the May weather in Montreal hasn't been too impressive lately (it was legit snowing a few weeks ago, guys), but the leaves are budding, the flowers are sprouting, the grass is green, and the sun looks like it's here to stay.
Which, all in all, will make for one seriously fun national day off. And probably a well-needed day off, if we're all being honest with each other.
Victoria Day also happens to be the unofficial start of the summer season in Montreal (at least to me, anyway), which means there's an extra reason to celebrate!
If you're wondering what exactly there is to do this long weekend, don't worry. There are tons of things going on this weekend this Saturday, Sunday, and even Monday, for all kinds of price points.
Keep in mind, all of the following activities are super fun! Some are free and cheap, too, though; and others might cost a little more, but are well worth doing now that you have the time.
