8 Things You Can Do In Montreal This Friday, Saturday, & Sunday

Activities to ride out this crazy weather.
8 Things You Can Do In Montreal This Friday, Saturday, & Sunday

Hey Montreal, hope everyone is staying safe — and mostly indoors — today. The weather conditions are real out there. What started out to be a week of fluffy light snow has now turned into a total winter disaster. Nothing is worse than extreme fluctuating temperatures in the dead of winter.

However, don't think that this storm means your weekend is ruined. If you plan on actually venturing out this weekend, there are still lots of winter events happening around the city!

I do recommend, however, that you stay tuned to each respective event page to make sure there won't be any weather related cancellations. For example, last week Fetes Des Neiges was cancelled due to extreme cold temperature. 

That said, have a great weekend Montreal, and drive safe!
