Did you know that Montreal hosts a dog festival? Did you also know that it hosts a cat festival, a kite festival, a LEGO festival, a puppet festival, another puppet festival, and a festival dedicated to board games and board game aficionados?
Over the past 9 months I have attended and photographed as many festivals in Montreal as I could. From the mainstream to the underground to the beyond underground, I was there. Last night at the Défilé des Rêves Plaza St-Hubert—not the first, but the second Santa Claus parade I have participated in this year—I attended my 200th festival, frozen to the bone and with a grin from ear to ear!
This milestone also coincided with another one: my project has reached 75% completion as I now have only 3 months left. I still cannot believe that I have come so far, it seems like it was only yesterday that I timidly explored the Place des Festivals during Montréal en Lumière for my first fest.
Although the summer blockbuster fests have come and gone, I look forward to discovering what the city has to offer during the snow-covered months to come!
