With a zombie invasion thrown in there too.
Montreal Is Hosting A Free "Gaming Festival" All Over The City

Winter just got a little (or a lot) better with the return Quebec's biggest game festival, Montréal Joue. This is actually the 3rd edition of the festival, and will feature over 200 free activities, over a dozen game events, and 150 exhibitors on display, taking place in 80 different locations around the city.

Montreal is already Canada's biggest cultural playground, so it only makes sense that the city also hosts one of the biggest game festivals. This includes everything from retro bored games, zombie invasions, arcades, and all-night gaming fun as part of Montreal En Lumiere's Nuit Blanche.

Montréal Joue begins February 21 and runs right through until March 8, right in time for Reading Week.

Check out the schedule below, and check out the Facebook Page for more details.
