Celebrating Montréal 375

I am in love with re-discovering the province that was my home for such a long time. I’m looking foward to returning for Montréal375! When I immigrated to Montréal in 1969, it was the beginning of what came to be a love of our adopted country.  My father had gone to school at McGill University in the late 1940s and vowed that he would return to La Belle Province.  I have the fondest memories of growing up on the West Island and then attending McGill University when it was my turn.  I spent many an evening at the Montreal Jazz Festival when it was in its infancy.  This year it will celebrate its 38th anniversary.  Not to be missed, the festival runs from June 28th to July 8th.  This year’s headliners will include Bob Dylan, Diana Krall, Buddy Guy, Melissa Ethridge and many more.   I loved that the streets of the city are closed down so you could walk around and listen to the different stages, take in the buskers and artist that popped up everywhere.  As Montreal celebrates its 375 Anniversary, the city has decided to make an even bigger party by combining with Canada’s sesquicentennial.
