Below are listed 29 free things to do in Montreal for October 2019. \nFrom the last hurrahs for favourite summertime festivities to some spooky Halloween activities, these are the events to check out!\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nIt's time to shake things up. Many of the activities, festivals and outdoor events are closing up for the season this October. So it's time to do all of those free things to do in Montreal that maybe you've been putting off during the summer months.\nOctober is also usually the ideal month to get outside for some of those last strolls around the city or hikes up the mountain without worrying too much about the chill factor. Because once November is here, a lot of us Montrealers begin to practice our hibernation methods for the winter to come.\nThis also happens to be one of the most beautiful months for the city; it's a little emptier with most of the summer tourists long gone; leaves have changed to yellows and reds, stores are starting to prepare for Halloween, yet you're not quite hit with the barrage that is Christmas.\nWith all that in mind, and knowing some of us wouldn't mind a little extra padding in our wallet over the next few months, we took a look at 30 free things you can still do in Montreal for October.\nDust off your summer bucket list, October may be the last time you can experience some of these.\nSunset Yoga with Zach Ross + Erica Leonard\nWhen: October 1; 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.\nWhere: 3744 Rue Saint-Ambroise SW; Parc des Corroyeurs\nView this post on Instagram Big love to you all.

Vajra means thunderbolt in Sanskrit, exemplifying a powerful sense of expression. In the Buddhist tradition the thunderbolt is said to be the ultimate tool against feelings of doubt, making this mudra a great choice when you want to calm feelings of fear, anxiety, or other self defeating thoughts or behaviours. Place your hands over your heart, with fingers crossed and thumbs wide. Take a few breaths. Rest in stillness.

Now that it is autumn, I've taken some time to reflect on how good this summer was and all the places I was able to go. My favorite memory from this past summer was going to Quebec City and seeing some of the oldest buildings in North America.

The exploitation of Jharia's underground started way back in 1896. The coal mines were nationalized in 1971, and a majority of the mines in the region are now owned by the state. Feeding the nation’s insatiable appetite, the search for minerals has turned large tracts of forests into wastelands. The Indian government plans to double its state-run coal production by 2020. Narendra Modi’s had announced in 2015 that he intended to open one new mine per month in order to reach this new target. #zonephotographer #womenintheword #humanity #coal #cameraobscura #discoverindia #featureshoot #greatshot #ig_mood #irimages #manfrotto #master_gallery #natgeohub #naturephotography #nationalgeographic #natgeotravellerindia #picoftheday #photooftheday #people_infinity_ #streetlife #streetphotography #streetlife_award #wanderlust #wanderlustlife #wanderlustfilms #zonestreet #zonephotographer #discoverindia #india #incredibleindia🇮🇳 #jharkhand A post shared by VALERIE LEONARD PHOTOGRAPHY (@valerieleonardphotography) on Jul 13, 2018 at 3:33am PDT\nFind out more!\nRent A Free Bixi The Last Free Sunday Of The Season\nWhen: October 27\nWhere: Locations around Montreal\nView this post on Instagram Dernier Dimanche BIXI gratuit offert par @manulife de la saison!
