17 Things To Do In Montreal This Weekend

Dont waste your last summer days!
Ave. du Mont-Royal Street Fair

Fall has been slowly beginning to peek out in Montreal. The air is getting crisp when the sun sets and, gradually, we can feel that summer is fading away.  

Although I personally love fall, it feels as if we blinked and summer was suddenly over. Students have now begun to come back and prepare for the semester, summer dresses are being placed at the back of our closets and every local is looking for the best ways to enjoy those last fleeting summer moments.    

One thing about Montreal is that it never disappoints when it comes to things to do over the weekend. There is a wide range of events or activities to explore and you do not want to waste those rays of sun before their warm embrace disappears for a full 6 months.

If you are trying to figure out what to do over the weekend, I am about to make it a lot easier for you.

These fifteen activities are a perfect way to end your summer with a bang!
