Though it may not seem like it, June is right around the corner. It's one of the most exciting months for the city residents: the weather is great, the city is in full bloom and there are a ton of things to do.

Seriously, there are at least two festivals happening on any given week, and a ton of other activities from the Grand Prix to outdoor movie screenings.

The best part is that many of these awesome events are absolutely FREE, which means that you can set aside some money to buy those Osheaga tickets you really want or spend a little extra on sangria or food on a sunny terrasse.
