Every fall the Botanical Garden of Montreal has a special display of Chinese silk lanterns in the Chinese Garden. The lantern display tells stories from Chinese folklore and culture. It usually ends around Halloween.
The Botanical Gardens are at 4101 Sherbrooke East, near the Olympic Stadium at Metro Pie-IX on the Green Line. It costs $10.00 for students. It is best to see the lanterns at night, but you can enjoy walking around the gardens in the afternoon and then waiting for night to come.
