15 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

Hot air balloon rides, Halloween parties, and a pop-up craft market!
15 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend: October 25, 26, 27

The colder it gets, the harder it is to find the energy to get up and leave the house. The thought of layering clothes and walking against the wind towards your destination is anything but appealing. The sad reality, however, is that it is only going to get colder, which is why this weekend you need to get up and check out all the cool things to do in Montreal

With Halloween just a few days away and the snow coming sooner than we know, this is the perfect weekend to get out of the house and try a unicorn latte or maybe check out a hidden garden in the city. If neither of those things intrigues you, why not venture outside Montreal and go on a hot air balloon ride — how awesome does that sound?

Don't miss out on these moments because before we know it, it is going to be Christmas. Take advantage of the nice and brisk temperatures and go out there and enjoy yourself, you won't regret it!
