Montreal is poised to be festival central this summer, recession or not.
There will be music and comedy and much more in the city, which will
also see the anniversaries of several of its most successful events.
The Montreal International Jazz Festival is turning 30. The Cirque du
soleil, the international fireworks festival and the Montreal Bike Fest,
which culminates with the Tour de l'ile cycling event, all turn 25. But
that only scratches the surface of what's going on.
Marie-Josee Pinsonneault, a spokeswoman for Tourism Montreal, reels off
a list of attractions, including an exhibition on pirates, an
avant-garde music festival and a beer festival where more than 400 types
of brew can be sampled. Click on the Link below..
