MONTREAL IS THE WILD CHILD of Canadian cities. It’s also among the older cities in Canada, just recently celebrating its 375th birthday. This combination is attractive: a lively, artistic, rebellious city with a penchant for the arts and culture, set against European architecture and attitude. Montreal likes to party, but with culture. It’s unlike anywhere else in North America. I had the good fortune of heading up there for some of their 375th events, and got to explore the sites, food, culture, music, and atmosphere of the city while I did so. Check out this series of images showcasing Montreal as the festival and arts capital of Canada.
