14 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

Fall festivals, dance parties, and Halloween events!
Montreal skyline at dusk.

September hit us all like a ton of bricks. I know I am not the only person that feels like summer came and went in the blink of an eye.  

Before we know it, our city is going to turn into a giant skating rink, and before that happens, I want to make sure I make the most of sweater weather, which just so happens to be my favourite fashion season!  

This weekend, there are so many interesting things going on in and around our city that it would be a shame to not take advantage of them! 

Of particular note are the fall festivals that have already begun to pop up in the Montreal area!

I know I sound like a broken record, but we really are lucky to live in a city that has so much to offer.

From cool festivals and conventions to family friendly activities and live shows, this weekend is really going to be a good one.
