Montreal's 2015 "Lantern Festival" Will Be Lighting Up The Botanical Gardens

The most enchanting time of the year.
Montreal's 2015 "Lantern Festival" Will Be Lighting Up The Botanical Gardens

The days may be getting shorter, but in Montreal the nights will be far from dark, especially thanks to the Botanical Garden's "Garden of Light" that's opening next week.

From September 4 to November 1, the Chinese and Japanese gardens will be illuminated with beautiful lanterns and colourful oriental-themed installations, respectively, every day once the sun goes down. The entire place is going to look like the setting of a magical fairy-tale, so this is definitely something you need to see.

The garden will be the perfect spot to spend those crisp fall nights, and hey, maybe even to take a date. Anyone that's ever read a book or seen a movie knows that nothing says romance quite like beautiful lighting in a picturesque garden.

For more information on the Garden of Light, check out the Botanical Garden's website.
