The pandemic has taken our freedom and enjoyment away, but keep the faith as it’s not the end of the world. We’re seeing the light at the end of this long tunnel.
Montreal is now in the ‘Green’ zone, as is the entire province of Quebec. More relaxed restrictions for social gatherings and group sports.
So are we outside for this coming weekend?
Seems like most of the celebrations will be virtual this year.
As a celebration for Montreal Carifiesta normally begins the Thursday before and goes to the Sunday after, which is considered the “last lap” or “cool down”.
This year, Montreal Carifiesta is supposed to fall on the first weekend of July and the CCFA plans to have a promotional truck on Saturday as well as a virtual tribute on Sunday on Facebook live at 8pm.
