Alright, guys, we're almost there. The days are getting longer; the sun is starting to come out; and the temperatures are slowly, slowly getting more and more mild.

Which means we're very close to being in the throes of spring, AKA one of my top two fave seasons.

Spring is awesome for many reasons. Budding plants, beautiful sunshine, and the super fun 21 Balancoires exhibit that takes place in the Quartier Des Spectacles annually.

If you don't know what this is... well, friend, prepare to be amazed.

The 21 Balancoires/21 Swings exhibit is basically 21 musical, lighted swings installed at Montreal's Quartier Des Spectacles, on the Promenade Des Artistes.

This year, the swings will be back on April 10 all the way until May 28, which means you've got more than a month to enjoy the musical swings.
