16 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

The spooky season is going out with a bang!
16 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

Although it feels like Halloween has been going on all week, this weekend is the weekend to go out there and join in on the fun. From disco bashes to movies in the park, Montreal has got your Halloween needs covered. Though it might seem ridiculous to some, the postponement of Halloween by the city of Montreal also means that you get to save all your celebrations for the weekend!

But if you are anything like me, the thought of Halloween is enough to trigger an anxiety attack, which is why I am happy to say that this weekend, in and around our city, there are also several events that don’t involve screaming. From ToyCon to testing out a new board game, this weekend has got a little something for everyone.
