Sep 10 2018, 1:06 pm

Montreal’s magical Gardens of Light festival returned to the Botanical Gardens this weekend where it will continue to light up nightly until October 31.

Three cultural gardens, the Chinese, Japanese, and First Nations Gardens are lit up to showcase nature from different perspectives.

The lantern festival is immensely popular with both tourists and locals and is the perfect spot to nab some gorgeous photos.

Instagram was buzzing with pictures from this weekend’s launch and we’ve put together the 19 best ones to tide you over until you get a chance to check it out for yourself.
