Thank you Montreal!
A month has gone by since we dined under the stars on one of the most beautiful streets of our city. I still find myself daydreaming about all the wonderful moments we created. This eighth edition of Le Dîner en Blanc de Montréal will remain one of the best editions many of us have ever experienced so far. Beautiful weather, a majestic venue, intoxicating music, seamless organization, motivated volunteers, and joyful guests… all the right ingredients that made for an exceptional night!
For your viewing pleasure, below are the links to the 2016 video as well as some photos that will bring back the memories of that magical evening.
