Prepare yourself for a seriously magical time.
Montreal’s 2016 “Lantern Festival” Will Be Lighting Up The Botanical Gardens

If I said it once, I've said it a thousand time: Montreal is legit one of the most magical places in the whole world. And if you need some kind of proof, get yourself to Montreal's Botanical Gardens. This spot is so gorgeous, it's hard not to get enchanted every time you step foot into it.

And very soon, it's about to get a whole lot more enchanting.

The Botanical Gardens will be hosting their gorgeous Gardens Of Light lantern festival this September. Starting on September 2 and running until October 31, the event will take place between 9 AM and 9 PM, although the lanterns will only light up at night.

The event will feature a whole bunch of beautiful, colourful, glowing lanterns and decorations following a specific theme (this year's is The Son Of Heaven, focusing on the life of one of China's emperors). Of course, this makes it legit the perfect spot for a date - or for anything else, TBH - this fall.
