Friends, what's the number one sign that summer has finally hit Montreal? The sweltering heat? The budding trees and green grass? The shorts?\nNo. None of those things scream summer in Montreal louder than public art installations, events, and beautiful, open terrasses.\nA photo posted by Kristof Saxe Cobourg Gotha (@hedgehog86) on May 10, 2016 at 12:45pm PDT\nThere's one spot in Montreal that combines all of these things together, making for one fantastic summer destination. And, friends, after a long, cold winter, it's finally open.\nLa Grande Terrasse Rouge, located on Saint-Denis street between Roy and Duluth and Marie-Anne and Mont-Royal, is finally open again for Montrealers to enjoy.\nA photo posted by Tiph&Co (@traveltiph) on Oct 27, 2015 at 4:23pm PDT\nFirst launched in 2015, La Grande Terrasse Rouge is basically a huge, awesome red terrasse, and the very best way to celebrate Saint-Denis Street. Not only does it beautify the whole street- and offer a respite from all the Saint-Denis construction - but there'll be tons of events, shows, games, music, and much more.\nA photo posted by @frejin514 on Aug 27, 2015 at 4:07am PDT\nAs of this week, the installation's officially begun, and is set to run until the fall.\nA photo posted by Gaby (@gabypanda) on Sep 18, 2015 at 3:02pm PDT\nSource\nAdd mtlblog on Snapchat.
