Montreal Is Hosting A Free “Maple Syrup Food Festival”

The most wonderful time of the year.
Montreal Is Hosting A Free “Maple Syrup Food Festival”

Ah, spring. Is there a season more beautiful? Everything's defrosting and coming back to life; it's truly a magical time. And what screams "spring" and "magic" in Montreal? That's right, friends. Maple syrup.

For the sixth year in a row, La Cabane Panache et Bois rond will be taking over the Promenade Wellington, starting on March 18 and ending on March 20, 2016. For those of you who know a little about this event, you already know what you're in for (A good time). For those of you a little new to things, don't worry. This event is super fun and celebrates all things maple syrup, with a a traditional tire d'érable, contests, games, music, and food (And much more, of course).

Montreal's Hidden 'Enchanted Alley' Is Back This Year & You Can Take Pics If You Find It

You can take your own photos or book a professional photoshoot!

There's a little bit of holiday magic in every nook and cranny of Montreal. Verdun's "Enchanted Alley" is back again this year off rue Wellington with a whole new setup.

While last year the alley took the form of a forest walk up to the charming façade of a log cabin, organizers opted for a cozy interior scene for the 2021 season. Visitors will now find a large (faux) fireplace complete with a Christmas tree and a big red chair.

I don't think I'm alone when I say that summer in Montreal is pretty much the best season. It's not so much the weather (but let's be honest, a big part of it is the weather)... it's more like a combination of everything.

Honestly, one of my absolute favourite things about summer in Montreal is that pretty much everyone comes together to have a seriously awesome time.

If I were to ask you what the perfect dessert is, what would you say? Chocolate cake? Ice cream? I don't know, like, gummy worms?
