My name is Dasilva and I’ve joined the Culips team primarily to help out with the blog. I’m originally from Montreal, and I’m interested in a lot of things: music, photography, travel, and especially writing. I’ll be posting short pieces every two weeks about what’s going on in our city and its neighbourhoods; about local artists, cultural events, and other fun stuff. Hopefully, through the blog I’ll be able to let you see a little bit of what Montreal is like, while helping you with your English at the same time. Feel free to send me your comments and suggestions!
Last Saturday I went to my first Igloo fest with a friend. In case you’ve never heard of it, Igloo fest is a yearly winter event in Montreal. It’s a series of outdoor concerts in the old port (one of the oldest parts of the city) where you can not only see international djs perform but also see some sculptures, grab a hot-dog, or have a few drinks at a bar made entirely out of ice!
I took a few pics so you can see what I’m talking about, but you could also check out the official site.
On the night that my friend and I went it was pretty cold, but jumping around at the Stanton Warriors show (two djs from the U.K.) soon warmed us up. If you like electronic music and dancing outdoors in the snow, this is definitely an event for you. Just make sure to bundle up in your warmest winter gear before you go.
