The holiday season is upon us and the city of Montreal is slowly turning into a winter wonderland!\nFrom a Harry Potter concert to an LGBTQ+ film festival to the Santa Claus parade, this weekend is packed with cool things to get up to!\nSee what's happening across Montreal this weekend below.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nThe holiday season is almost upon us. I don't know about you, but it feels to me like Montreal is getting into the Christmas spirit a lot sooner than usual. With so many cool and festive activities going on this weekend, you can get in the holiday spirit too!\nLet’s be real, there are two kinds of people in the city, those who blast Christmas music at the first sight of snow and those who only acknowledge the season on December 24. If you're one of the latter, it shouldn't stop you from taking part in some of the things going on this weekend in Montreal.\nWhatever type of person you are, the city is offering a slew of fun and out of the box events to take part in. From hidden Christmas markets and vintage shopping to dumplings and karaoke at the same time, this weekend is sure to be nothing short of amazing.\nWe live in a pretty great city, there's no denying that. Don’t allow the cold keep you cooped up in your home - it's too early to let that happen. Instead, why don’t you embrace the cold and enjoy it, like a true Canadian?\nGet In The Holiday Spirit At Miracle Christmas Pop-Up Bar\nView this post on Instagram Miracle Atlanta is LIT! 🎄💯🎁💡#MiracleCocktails A post shared by Miracle Pop-Up (@miraclepopup) on Dec 1, 2017 at 1:46pm PST\nWhen: November 22 - December 26\nWhere: 131 Rue De La Commune O.\nGet in the Christmas spirit here!\nListen To The Bach Festival At Saint Joseph's Oratory\nView this post on Instagram A post shared by Anna Hopkins (@annabanana_hops) on Sep 22, 2019 at 8:21am PDT\nWhen: November 24; 3 p.m. - 5 p.m.\nWhere: 3800 Chemin Queen Mary; Saint Joseph's Oratory\nAre you a Bach fan?
