5 things to do in Montreal today: Thursday, October 14

Oct 14 2021, 1:00 pm

Because of Thanksgiving, we’re already past the halfway point of the workweek.

And that’s something we can all be thankful for.

It may be fall, but it’s still very pleasant to be out and about. So make sure to take advantage of the lovely weather, because it’ll be snowing before you know it.

And if you want your week to feel like it’s zooming by even quicker, here are a few things you can do in and around the city today.

Pumpkinferno at Upper Canada Village

How about more than 7,000 pumpkins in one place?

Pumpkinferno, the one-kilometre walk with a backdrop of the picturesque 19th-century setting, is only 148 kilometres from Montreal.

After being closed for more than two years for renovations (and a pandemic), the Biodôme de Montréal is finally reopened.

Using some elements from Biodôme’s original 1976 design, guests can now observe the birds in the Tropical Rainforest from treetop level, enter a beaver lodge, and really experience what subpolar cold feels like – just like the penguins.

Walk through replicas of four ecosystems found in the Americas without even leaving the island.

When: Daily
Time: 9 am – 6 pm
Where: 4777 Pierre-de Coubertin Avenue
Price: $16.50 – $21.50, available online

When: Every day
Time:  12 pm to 8 pm
