This is what the first weekend of Montréal en Lumière looked like (PHOTOS)

Feb 24 2020, 7:59 am

The Quartier des Spectacles just got a whole lot brighter as the city’s Festival of Lights returned this past weekend.

Known officially as Montréal en Lumière, the outdoor site offers a multitude of spectacular lights, activities, and tasty grub to really show the winter’s dark days who’s boss.

The site doesn’t only boast mesmerizing sights, but also top-notch gourmet food stations, selling everything from soups to keep you nice and toasty to maple syrup products and cheese fondue.

The outdoor bash stays lit until March 1, before the city celebrates the all-night party Nuit Blanche to sum up the week-long festival.

If you didn’t get a chance to check out the lights during the first weekend, here’s how bright the party shined throughout social media all weekend.
