Here are just a few of the many events happening in Montreal this weekend:
If you’re into comics and/or celebrities and pop culture this weekend’s Montreal ComicCon is for you. Today (Saturday’s) event is so popular online tickets are sold out and you have to line up at the door. Bring your comics and cash, especially if you’re looking for an autograph from a bigtime celeb or want to buy tickets to a panel. At the Palais des Congrès all weekend. Info available here.
Annual Community Corn Roast, Hector Toe-Blake Park (René-Lévesque & Sussex)
From 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Free. Details available here.
Eat, Learn & Play at Occupy the Sud-Ouest.
My last post has the details but this weekend’s “occupy” event is all about building community. There’s also free vegan food and play spaces for children. Info is available here.
