April, my favourite month, is almost here! With the beginning of this new month comes flowers, rain, and the first signs of spring. Not to mention that waiting for the bus is no longer torturous.
On top of that, Earth Day is bound to be huge this year since everyone is really talking about the climate... finally.
There are a ton of great free things to do in Montreal this month. Now that the weather is getting mild, we can even include a ton of outdoor activities! Check out some of our finds below.
