As the long weekend begins and the sun is shining it is a better time than ever to plan a fun packed weekend of activities.
Not only have I compiled a fun list of things to do but all for under $15.
1. Piknic Electronik
This fun summer electronic music event hits off this Sunday and carries on till October the 2nd. With tickets as little as $13,50 online and $15 on site. So if you in the mood for some dancing in the sun this is the place to be.
2. Cité Mémoire
The Cité Mémoire is the largest outdoor video-projection installation in the world and completely free. Watch the history of Montreal come alive through images, dialogue and music projects on the walls, in alleys, on the ground and trees in historic Old Montréal, telling stories of famous as well as little-known Montrealers that spectators can also listen to by downloading a free mobile application.
3. Food Truck/Street Food
With many different food trucks dotted across the city throughout the weekend why not enjoy a meal to go. With many delicious delights for under $15. You can find their locations online and plan your day or evening accordingly.
4. Biking at Parc Jean-Drapeau
With the official opening of the 21km long bike path at Parc Jean-Drapeau, get your bike ready and why not enjoy a energetic or leisurely ride.
5. Picnic or BBQ
Of course an obvious choice, but while that sun is shining what could be better than being out in it. So grab your basket or BBQ and head for one of the many parks this wonderful city has to offer. Or even to the top of Mont-Royal to eat and enjoy with the breath taking view from the top.
6. Boat Ride
