Magical 'Christmas fountain' opens at this Montreal mall tomorrow (PHOTOS)

Nov 22 2019, 11:42 am

Considering Christmas is usually associated with snow and ice, it might be time for a little element change.

For the fourth consecutive year, the Christmas fountain known as “Fontaine boréale” is returning to the complexe Desjardins for the holiday season and it splashes off tomorrow.

The immersive and multi-sensory experience features the Complexe Desjardin’s Grande-Place water fountain, completely decked out in the Christmas spirit.

Every hour, the fountain lights and shoots up to the shopping mall’s ceiling, accompanied by music, lights, and special effects.

Or, it could actually be magic.

It certainly looks that way judging from a quick teaser made for the fountain’s first year in 2016.

Perfect for all ages, the Fontaine boréale is an ideal spot to soak up the Christmas spirit. Plus, it’s free to check out.

Speaking of, take a look at some highlight from past editions of the Fonataine boréale and its surrounding winter wonderland:
