Weekends in Montreal are a special time. Not only do we get to take some time off work, but we get the time to explore our magical city. Although the city may currently be under red alert, there are still a number of things to do in Montreal this weekend — whether safely outside or in your apartment.
From indulging in buckets of fried chicken to finally visiting Montreal's drive-in theatre, there are tons of opportunities to make the most of your few days off.
There's even a spectacular Halloween village to visit just a little outside of the city.
And of course, there are still multiple things you can get up to from the comfort of your own home!
