The worldwide tour showcases the stories that matter through photography.

The 2019 exhibition features the World Press Photo of the Year, and for the first time, the World Press Photo Story of the Year. The winners were chosen by an independent jury that reviewed more than 78,801 photographs entered by 4,738 photographers from 129 countries.

When: Wednesday, September 25
Time: 10 am – 10 pm
Where: Marche Bonsecours, 325 de la Commune

Oasis Surf

Just because the summer is officially over, doesn’t mean you can’t still ride the waves.

Oasis Surf in Brossard is a giant indoor pool that generates its own waves, open to amateur and experiences surfers looking to ride some heavy waves.

Radical.

When: Wednesday, September 25
Time: 10 am – 10 pm
Where: Suite 01, 9520 Boulevard Leduc

As it does every fall, the Gardens of Light returned to the city, shining thousands of bright lights at the Botanical Garden.

Espace pour la vie invites everyone to discover the cultural riches of the three gardens along an illuminated pathway in its flagship autumn event.

The venue is split up into three gardens: the Chinese Garden, the First Nations Garden, and the Japanese Garden.

McKibbin’s Irish Pub Hooley Night

McKibbin’s Irish Pub hosts their ‘Hooley Night’ tonight on the third floor.

Ladies pay $10 at the door, gentlemen pay $25 and then it’s an open bar, all you can drink. The bar offers Moosehead beer, vodka, gin, rum, rye, and whiskey as part of the special. The third floor features a dance floor and a DJ.

If you’re looking to dance and drink on a Wednesday night, it’s tough to find a better deal than McKibbin’s. Get there nice and early to beat the line.
