Montreal Closing Off Plaza St-Hubert For A Massive Sidewalk Sale

Honestly, there is nothing on this earth that screams "summer" to me louder than a good old-fashioned block party.

And if you love the community feel and fun vibes of a block party as much as I do, then do I have some awesome news for you.

Montreal's Plaza St-Hubert (where me and 99% of the people I grew up with bought all our prom dresses and wedding stuff, TBH) is a magical spot filled with restaurants, cafes, and shops.

And this summer, it's going to be completely closed off to traffic to make way for their huge block party.

Going down on July 5 - 9, Atmosph'Air sur la Plaza is a huge event that'll see the entire Plaza closed off to cars.

There'll be sales, food, drinks, contests, and the main attraction: a free music festival, featuring tons of artists.

Sounds like a whole bunch of fun to me, friends!

Montreal's Plaza Saint-Hubert is getting two self-driving buses that the public can ride for free as part of a pilot project that will be on from October to December 2021 and May to July 2022.

The two electric minibuses from the company Keolis will operate along a 2-kilometre loop between rues Saint-Hubert and Saint-André, and rues Beaubien and Jean-Talon.

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.

Announcing Montreal's First Ever Pothole Beauty Pageant

Which is the city's most beautiful pothole?

What we love about potholes here at MTL Blog is that they provide us with an endless number of stories to share. Readers are constantly sending us photos of their favourite holes in the road. Not only that but we've become friends with many potholes around the city.

We see them every day doing their very best to make us late to work and to destroy our wheels so it's about time we give them some love!
