Winter festival MONTRÉAL EN LUMIÈRE celebrates gourmet food and illuminates the Quartier des spectacles downtown all week. The family-friendly outdoor site features creative, winter-worthy food and drink, a Ferris wheel, a 110-metre ice slide, high-tech illuminated art, fire pits for roasting marshmallows, live music and more. Look up to the facades of the Grande Bibliothèque and Saint-Laurent metro to see the projections of Space Monkey and Vivre et archiver chaque page qui se tourne.
In Old Montréal, Notre-Dame Basilica (one of many Montréal churches featuring cultural activities) features beautiful multimedia show AURA. By night in Old Montréal, use your smartphone to search out the projections of Cité Mémoire on building facades, starting again on March 22. See incredible views of the city on La Grande Roue de Montréal observation wheel, from Mount Royal Park, at the Observatoire Place Ville Marie downtown and from the observatory at the top of the Montréal Tower at Olympic Park.
