This year, on October 27, Montrealers and visitors from across the world will be able to participate in the famous Montreal Zombie Walk that's held annually in the city. Festival-goers have the chance to create the ultimate "zombie" outfit to haunt the streets in. Whether you're participating yourself or are just intrigued by the idea that thousands of flesh-eating monsters will be roaming the streets, you do not want to miss this one-day event.

Seriously, just take a look at the unbelievable photos of the undead from last years festival!

There will be makeup booths available to visit before the walk to ensure you're looking your absolute zombie best (or worst). You can also find photobooths to capture a picture of your undead self, as well as animations and live shows throughout the event to augment the apocalyptic atmosphere.

Past festivals in the city have welcomed thousands of "zombies" that seriously make this the most haunted day Montreal sees each year. You can even expect to find a few zombie after-parties around the city to extend your spooky celebrations late into the night.

The fun starts at 1:00PM at Place des Festivals, with ghoulish souls marching through the streets until 6:00PM.

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.

Which is the city's most beautiful pothole?

What we love about potholes here at MTL Blog is that they provide us with an endless number of stories to share. Readers are constantly sending us photos of their favourite holes in the road. Not only that but we've become friends with many potholes around the city.

We see them every day doing their very best to make us late to work and to destroy our wheels so it's about time we give them some love!
