As a university student, this event is something I am looking forward to. With its numerous events, free of charge, Montréal en Lumière is the perfect festival to learn more about the culture of Montreal and discover just how much this beautiful city has to offer. Being a foodie myself, I can hardly wait to attend events hosted by world-renowned chefs and performances capturing the raw talent of Montreal’s artists. Last year, I was lucky enough to be in Montreal during this beautiful festival, though it was much colder than this year and numerous layers of thermal underwear had to we worn. Despite the cold, I enjoyed the spectacular cheese tastings and sipped on a mug of rich hot chocolate while exploring Montreal’s Museum of Fine Arts one evening; it was truly a memorable experience. I look forward to attending this year’s events for an extremely interesting and unique mid-winter experience.
