EC Montreal staff and students celebrated Montreal’s Birthday today! Montreal is 371 years old today. We had cake and decorated the lounge with balloons. Students were so happy to celebrate the city they have come to love so much.
There will be festivities all day long! The fun starts outdoors with free, all-day party La Fête de Montréal in the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles. The day will be celebrated with performances from circus troupe Les 7 Doigts de la Main, folk-rock band Irreverend James and the Critical Mass Choir, choreographer-dancers Jocelyne Montpetit and Manon Oligny, artist Armand Vaillancourt and more. Food is also front and centre at the festivities with a variety of gourmet food trucks and a happy hour cocktail party at 4:30 p.m., followed by DJ sets by Vincent Lemieux and a multimedia musical event at 9:30 p.m.
