Happy Thanksgiving!
16 Things To Do In Montreal This Thanksgiving Weekend 2019

Not only is the weekend right around the corner, but with this weekend being a long weekend, I know many Montrealers are going to want to take advantage of some of the final few days of tolerable temperatures. There are a ton of things to do in Montreal this weekend. So, it's up to you to get up and out of the house and take part in what our city has to offer. 

Thanksgiving is a time meant to give thanks for all that you have and spend some time with loved ones. So, why not do all of that and more by creating some memorable experiences with your family and friends?

With the fall at its peak, there are only a few more weeks left until the curse of winter hits again. The sun will be shinning on Montreal for at least some of the weekend, making it the ideal weekend to get out and have some fun. 

From diva dance parties to spending 30 hours locked in a coffin, this weekend has got it all and you can be part of the thrill.
