This past weekend was pretty big for Montreal. We had our last huge music festival of the summer, Ilesoniq and tons of other amazing events.
But don't worry friends, summer's not over just yet! We've got a whole lot of super fun festivals, events and free things happening in the city this weekend.
Although the weather isn't calling for sunshine yet we don't have to let that keep us shut up inside our homes! Get out there and make the most of these last few weekends of summer.
