The Village Québécois d’Antan invites Montrealers to a festive wonderland this season with a visit to its Desjardins Village in Lights.
The traditional Quebec village and its 19th & 20th century buildings are adorned with more than 25,000 lights, and you can wander the streets, talk with the villagers and wave hello to Santa. Outdoor fireplaces are a cozy spot to warm up with a hot chocolate, or savour a treat from The Doughnut Shop.
Village of Lights hosts activities & shopping
Sleigh rides are available for all with price of admission, and the General Store and Christmas market are open to shop for decorative items, handmade products, and old-fashioned goodies.
