Picture post: blue skies and street lamps in Montreal

Montreal Place des arts street lamp_ A storytelling home

One of the funky, futuristic street lamps at the Place des festivals in downtown Montreal. Quartier des spectacles is the place to go for entertainment in Montreal. With more than 30 concert rooms, dozens of art galleries and a great contemporary art museum it’s the city’s cultural center.

Right in the middle of the entertainment district, the Place des festivals was developed in 2009 in order to accommodate many of the city’s large-scale festivals (the Jazz fest, Francofolies, Just for Laughs). It is easy to spot because of its’ clean, modern architecture and oddly shaped lamp posts. Those humongous structures have been very useful to my friends and I as meeting spots during big concert events!
