Review of Botanical Gardens' Lantern Festival
Pros: Beautiful setting, dramatic lighting
Cons: Long lines, several buildings under construction, getting a bit worn out
I've been to Montreal's lantern festival 3 times. It's gone from amazing - to okay - to really pretty mediocre. They've been doing less upkeep than necessary over the years and are also still running it despite undertaking a multi-year renovation on the main buildings which means there's scaffolding everywhere and half the buildings are closed.
But… I'd still recommend it! It's really beautiful and a wonderful experience. It could just be so much better if they could reboot it again - and maybe after the renos they will.
I paid $15.50 (resident)espacepourlavie.ca
