With a new month comes brand new awesome, fun things to do in the city. February in Montreal is great for a bunch of reasons (Valentine's Day, beautiful, snowy views, a very short month of winter weather); but it's also great because in February, there are a whole bunch of free things to do.
1. Just feel like partying (for free)? On February 11 and 18, get yourselves to Igloofest for their free Off-Igloo Nights.
2. On February 2, don't forget to dig out your copy of Groundhog Day and watch one of the best film classics ever.
3. Down to become one with your body, mind, and soul? Head on over to Lole Ste-Catherine for a free Hatha Yoga session, February 3.
4. Starting February 22 and lasting the rest of the month, check out Montreal's outdoor Illuminart exhibits, as part of Montreal En Lumiere.
Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.
The results were based on searches for trips that would take place between July 7 and September 30.
At a press conference on Thursday, Premier François Legault, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and several other government representatives announced huge new investments into Canada's aerospace industry. These investments are set to create "more than 1,000" high-paying jobs in Quebec and the rest of Canada.
"The projects announced today are tangible platforms for creating exciting jobs," Aéro Montréal explained in a press release.
Ca Lem's owner, Stephanie Le, told MTL Blog that clients just need to download the TikTok app and show their account to the cashier in order to receive free pancake cereal sundaes — which are, of course, topped with maple syrup.
"We encourage users to take video and pictures of their visit to Ca Lem and post on Instagram, Facebook & TikTok platforms," she said.
There are limited quantities each day but the offer is valid at two of Ca Lem's locations — in NDG and the Plateau — so you can double your chances of getting a free sundae.

Founder Corinne Asseraf "imagined the Gallery 203 as a place of discovery, of meeting and exchange between artists and art enthusiasts" and you can feel exactly that the second you walk through the doors.
The mastermind behind all of this, Asseraf, has such a warming, kind presence, which is reason enough to take a visit to Galerie 203 whenever you're strolling through Old Montreal. She let MTL Blog know that anyone and everyone is welcome in her gallery.
