300,000 PEOPLE EXPECTED IN DOWNTOWN MONTREAL
On July 13 and 14, downtown Montreal will pulsate to the rhythms of La Sainte-Catherine célèbre, Canada’s biggest sidewalk sale. Sainte Catherine Street West will be closed to vehicular traffic between Bleury and Saint Marc streets for two days to accommodate the huge crowds that will visit the 16th edition of this event, which has become an annual Montreal tradition. With the Just for Laughs Terra Karnaval parade taking place in the evening, it’s the perfect time to spend a fantastic weekend downtown, taking full advantage of all the stores, the terrasses and summer in Montreal. Montrealers are all invited to be a part of this festive weekend.
Stores will be displaying their merchandise outside on Saturday until 7 p.m. and on Sunday until 6 p.m., much to the delight of bargain hunters, who will enjoy savings like at no other time of year.
Getting there: Metro Place-des-Arts, McGill, Peel or Guy-Concordia.
