Throwback Thursday: Summer and Autumn in Montreal.

After having one of the worst snowstorms recently in Montreal history (we got 40cm of snow), I find it rather fitting to post pictures of warmer and sunnier days (for the most part). Do not worry fellow Montrealers, warmer weather is on the way!

Mont-Royal from the observation tower located on top of the Olympic tower. This view is 175 metres above! If you look closely, you can see the dome of St. Joseph’s oratory.

A nice Autumn day at Beaver lake, located on top of Mont-Royal. This park is a nice place to relax, study, have a picnic and spend time with family, friends, or loved ones.

A mural made on Rue Duluth by Chris Dyer, one of the many various art pieces seen on this street.

The 41st Carifiesta taking place in downtown Montreal. This festival is amongst the hundreds of cultural festivals that happen in the city. This festival celebrates the many countries and cultures located in the Caribbean. Carifiesta also shows off the large Caribbean community Montreal has and attracts in excess of 500,000 spectators for the day.

Yet another festival in downtown Montreal, Just For Laughs fest! this is the world’s largest comedy fest, attracting 2 million + spectators over 2 weeks. Along with comedy fests, they offer free concerts and various activities. Along with this fest, Nuits D’Afrique (2-week festival showing cultures, music and food from African countries) and Zoofest take place, including a large food truck festival.

Old Montreal with Place d’Armes, a very beautiful public square. This area is always beautiful, no matter the weather.

And finally, a very typical Montreal scene, a large wall mural in Le Plateau. Montreal has thousands of murals and street art pieces of all sizes, and I recommend for tourists and local citizens to go street art hunting, as you’ll end up discovering new places and awesome shops as well.
