13 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

Did you know Montreal's second Climate Strike is happening this Friday?
13 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

Montreal is filled with holiday activities, which is why every Montreal local seems to slowly be getting into the holiday spirit. With the many things opening this weekend, I have no doubt that this weekend is going to be one to remember.

It may be cold, but it's not cold enough for spending your weekend indoors. Netflix will always be there but for now, we locals need to enjoy the crisp weather before the snow completely takes over our lives.

Christmas markets, light festivals, free crepes and even romantic date nights are all on the agenda this weekend throughout our awesome city. 

Not only is Christmas time upon us but shopping season is in full force (or should I say consumer season?). With Black Friday sales happening all around and Christmas markets opening all over the place, there's no denying that 'tis the season to be spending some cash.

But if you're not buying into the feeling of being forced to shop, you can partake in the second climate strike happening in Montreal on Friday! Its purpose? Anti-consumerism, as a response to Black Friday.

From exploring the outdoors to spend your time inside a mall, there is no reason why you shouldn’t try to experience everything that is happening throughout our city!
