Weekend in Montreal: Marché Jean-Talon / Jardins de lumière

Weekend in Montreal: Marché Jean-Talon / Jardins de lumière

Outdoor adventures are my favorite, but it’s nice to wander around a beautiful city like Montréal once in a while, especially when special events are taking place.

Every autumn, Montréal hosts “Jardins de lumière” or “Gardens of Light”. For two months, September through the end of October, part of the Montréal botanical garden becomes illuminated with lanterns and various Chinese mythology characters. The show is amazingly beautiful.
