16 Things To Do This Labour Day Weekend In Montreal

Enjoy the last taste of summer!
16 Things To Do This Labour Day Weekend In Montreal
  • Here are 16 things to do this Labour Day weekend in Montreal.
  • For the last weekend in August, be sure to take advantage of summer activities while you still can!

The last weekend of August means the unofficial last weekend of summer. It is almost time to say goodbye to those adorable sundresses and say hello to leggings and big sweatshirts because winter is coming and I know a lot of us can feel it in our bones.  

Although the scent of fall is filling the air, Montreal is going to be hit with some rays of sun this weekend and you should make the most of it because, lets face it, our days of warm sunshine are numbered.  

This weekend, there is a slew of fun activities and things to do around our city. From food festivals and new restaurants to try, to free yoga on the sand, the city is coming through.

From Friday after work until Sunday after dark Montreal has something for you to do, so do not waste your weekend binge watching Netflix, there is still a lot of time for that. Get up, get out and get going because this weekend is going to be awesome!
