Forget the winter doldrums — Montréal en Lumière offers revelers an exciting way to experience the season in Québec’s largest city, while stimulating all five senses. Known as one of the world’s largest winter festivals, this sensory extravaganza offers a feast for the eyes with dance performances and visual art exhibits. Culinary conferences and tastings with renowned guest chefs tempt the senses of taste and smell, and hands-on activities at the festival’s free outdoor section — think curling, zip-lining and taking a spin on the towering Air France Ferris Wheel — give attendees a feel for adventure. The aurally inclined will find an extensive roster of musical talent, including famed singer-songwriter Regina Spektor. Be sure to visit the website for the full lineup of fun.
