15 Things You Can Do In Montreal This Friday, Saturday, & Sunday

Key festivals happening this weekend!

Hello, beautiful people of Montreal! Hope the humidity is treating you well this week. I'm kidding because of course it's not, this heat is more oppressive than ever,  and if you're not complaining, then I'm afraid you may not be human.

A couple of not-to-miss festivals are kicking off this weekend, and I'm here to give you the details on each one!

A few highlights: If electronic music is your thing, don't forget to check out Ile Sonique at Parc Jean Drapeau. There is also a budding food and culture festival happening at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre that is definitely worth checking out. And lastly, we've got the highly anticipated Italian Week street festival going down in the heart of Little Italy all weekend. As you can see, this weekend is ALL about food!

For those who prefer something a little more relaxing than massively crowded festivals, I also threw in some more intimate and low-key activities, like boating and cafe crawling, that you should take advantage of before summer is gone.

As always everyone, enjoy your weekend in this beautiful city and stay hydrated!
