Montreal's New 1 KM "Rainbow Balls" On Sainte-Catherine Street Is Something You Have To Walk Under ASAP (20 Photos)

The street closes off to traffic; the businesses open their terrasses; and the Aires Libres art installation, AKA the "pink balls", get hung all over the street.

This year's Aires Libres, though, has taken a turn from the traditional pink. For 2017's edition, the balls are rainbow coloured - and trust, it's freaking magical to walk under!
