May is finally coming to an end and that means it's time for another round of free things to do in Montreal. Now, I don't know about you, but summertime somehow has a way of constantly bleeding my wallet dry. It could possibly have something to do with all the extra pitchers of sangria that I deem an absolute necessity, but who's to say really? So, if you're like me and would like to take all available opportunities to save yourself a little extra cash this summer, here's an entire month's worth of free events, activities and just all around money saving opportunities.
