Why You Need To Go: Montreal always has a way of coming to life and night and the new installation "Place des Souhaits" simply adds to it. The wish tree part of the piece twinkles at night! It's also set up next to a patio where you can spend your day chilling.

When: Every day until September 6 from 7 a.m. – 11 p.m.
Address: Place des Commencements; 200, rue de la Commune O., Montréal, QC
Why You Need To Go: You can find Place des Commencements located at the end of the Grand Quai in Old Montreal, which has a lovely beautiful green terrasse where you can sit on chairs and admire Habitat 67 and the Jacques-Cartier Bridge.
Performances will take place "on different stages" with "a limited number of spectators once in the afternoon from 1 p.m to 5 p.m. and once in the evening from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.," according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
Health measures will still be in place and wearing a mask will be mandatory when festival-goers are outside of their designated spots.
There will be more than 20 vibrant events for you to enjoy throughout the summer, with some of the best and up-and-coming local DJs spinning tunes in the sunshine.

This week, Saint-Zotique Beach announced the return of its Mega Parcours Eau Défi, which consists of 30 structures floating on top of the Saint-Lawrence River that "thrill- and fun-seeking" people can climb, run and balance on.
You can choose to ride the rapids in a canoe, a single kayak or a double kayak, which you can take on the water for four to five hours. You can also opt for a mini-raft or stand-up paddleboard (SUP) when the water levels are high enough.
Once you get past the first part of the descent — 5 kilometres into your journey — there are rest areas along the sides of the river where you can take breaks and enjoy your surroundings.
Departures are at 10 a.m. from June 11 to September 26 and there is a second departure at 10:30 a.m. from July 17 to August 22, but you must arrive at Cime Aventures 30 minutes before departure.
