With tons of events, and a movie or two filming in Montreal this year, it's no wonder we've got quite a handful of celebs visitng our beautiful city. Here are just a few you might be able to spot during the summer.
A Super Pink Moon Will Radiate Over Quebec's Sky Tonight
When It Happened: April 2020
A gorgeous 'Super Pink Moon' made headlines in early spring when Quebecers were able to witness it in all its glory. There were multiple super moons throughout 2020, but none seemed as bold, bright or beautiful as this one.
Montrealers took to the streets to protest systemic racism in Quebec and around the world after the murder of George Floyd in late May.
Artists and community organizers would later paint a mural on Rue Sainte-Catherine in Montreal's gay village, reading "La vie des noir.e.s compte," or Black Lives Matter. The street mural was removed in October by the city.
An Actual Bat Flew Through A Montreal Hospital This Week & Shut Down 5 Operating Rooms
When It Happened: October 2020
In a display of peak 2020, a literal bat flew into a wing of Maisonneuve-Rosemont Hospital last fall, forcing hospital staff to shut down five operating rooms, as the province grappled with the strain of COVID-19 on Quebec's health care system.
The CIUSSS told MTL Blog that the dilapidated state of the hospital was most likely how the bat made its way in.
In case you are unfamiliar with the term, "manspreading" or "mansitting" is the practice of sitting in a public transport with your legs wide apart, often covering more than one seat and inadvertently putting your crotch on display for the world to see.
Yesterday, Spotted STM posted a photo of this sign taken in a metro car in Bordeaux asking men to stop "man spreading". But not because it takes up two seats, it's because the makers of this sign believe, "manspreading" is a form of sexual harassment.
Thanks to the filming of X-Men in Montreal, Sophie Turner, who is playing Reran Grey and is famous for her fabulous acting in Game of Thrones, has turned up around ever corner! and has not been spotted walking her adorable Alaskan Klee Kai puppy.
In the picture above, Sophie Turner was spotted in Montreal by @alexmachard with her brand new puppy that she just got this September! It is the Alaskan Klee Kai breed which is basically like a mini-husky! Her puppy even has an Instagram account called @porkybasquiat.

Not only was Montreal blessed this summer with a visit from Joe Jonas and his girlfriend Sophie Turner, but his equally as famous brother Nick Jonas has decided to bless up Montreal even more! Just yesterday Nick Jonas was spotted in Montreal and he made it perfectly public via his Instagram story!
The reason for Nick Jonas' visit to Montreal happens to be the fact that he has officially joined Tom Holland in the movie 'Chaos Walking' which is being filmed in Montreal along with X-Men and others.
Nick Jonas wasn't just spotted in Montreal, he also announced his every movement from take off to landing in where he posted a snap saying "Montreal here I come"!
The movie is scheduled to start filming this week and will last until November, so bust out your stalking skills and get on the Nick Jonas hunt in Montreal!
