I'm sure at this point, everyone knows that summer in Montreal is everybody's one true bae. We've got a vibe that can't be beat; awesome weather (well, better weather than in winter); awesome people; and tons of seriously fantastic events going on.
And if you're adventurous, we also happen to be in the perfect location to explore other spots that are offering highkey fun activities of their own.
Like Mont-Tremblant, for example, which is roughly a two hour drive away from Montreal and happens to be hosting one wild float party this summer.
La Grande Dérive, hosted by Faded Underwear and Prfo Boardshop, is taking place this July 2, 2016 for the second year in a row.
With tons of tubes, a floating DJ booth (!) and much, much more, La Grande Dérive is pretty much like one massive party floating along the Rivière-Rouge. Good vibes all kinds? You know it.
