Empty offices, no tourists and fewer students means downtown is extra quiet lately, so, city of Montreal has come up with a new plan to revive the downtown area.

Its a $400,000 plan to attract more people downtown without the overcrowding.

To encourage picnicking and distanced recreation, seven public patios or terraces will be set up, some of the public squares will be reopened, there are pop-up shows planned around the city, live music, circus arts and theatre– in all there are about 200 surprises planed performances in the area, according to the city. And keep an eye out for discounted parking!
