Yes, the freezing temperatures and slushy snow can really bring you down, but that's why we have so many festivals throughout the season. They really compensate for any of the negative aspects of winter weather!

The scope of the event proves how fantastic it is: it takes over 150km of lights to make Montréal en Lumière as magical as it is. You'll definitely have to see it with your own eyes to believe it.

As if it couldn't get any better, the festival also hosts the city's renowned Nuit Blanche all-night celebration. Needless to say, if you plan on leaving your home to brace the cold at all this winter, then Montréal en Lumière should be on your calendar.

To sweeten the deal even more, most activities at the enchanting winter festival are free to attend! The Québec Maple Ferris Wheel and 600-ft zipline are must-experience attractons. If that's not your thing, enjoy visiting the dozens of food kiosks and witnessing incredible shows and performances.
