St-Ambroise Montreal FRINGE Festival: part 1

Montreal is a fantastic city.But there’s no Montreal like a summer Montreal. We have festivals coming out the wazoo. We have festivals just for the sake of having festivals. You see we are inside and cold for half of the year, if not more. So when summer comes, we go coocoo. All we want is to be in the sunshine, at any cost.
Well here’s a great festival coming up!

You can find a little bit of everything. Comedy, dansing, theater, acrobatics…
It is essentially the block party of the year. Every year. For one and all!
