If you’re around for the summer in Montreal, you have been gifted with the unique opportunity to discover how absolutely wild this city gets when it’s warm.

Truly, the minute it reaches above 20 a stage goes up at Place des Arts and does NOT come down until we begrudgingly make our way to classes in September.

Without further ado, here are the hits you can’t miss, curtesy of Flight Network Blog:
