This weekend, Semaine Italienne de Montreal reaches its peak with an activity-packed conclusion to its 10-day run!\nIt's the 26th year for the event and if last year is any indicator, it doesn't look like it's slowing down anytime soon. While it seems a 'week' is longer in Italy, we're pretty happy for those few extra days to celebrate. Because an Italian festival can't be contained to a mere 7 days!\nIt's a wild party that covers everything from a street festival (highly recommended) to vintage cars, fashion shows, awesome food, music, and live performances all ending in an open-air Opera.\nDid we mention the awesome food? Mmmmh....cannolis.\nVidéo promotionnelle 2018L'année dernière a été un succès. Êtes-vous prêts pour le festival ? 🇮🇹️😎\n//\nLast year's edition was a blast.
