Let's take a trip back to the summer of '67, when Montreal hosted the International and Universal Exposition, better known as Expo '67.

Considered the most successful World's Fair of the 20th century, Expo '67 was a monumental event for Montreal, and Canada (the nation was celebrating its 100th bday). 62 countries participated, and now, through the photos below, you can take part in the summer magic of '67 too. Take a look below.
