Les Tam-Tams at George-Étienne Cartier Monument

Monument

"I love Montreal in the summer. When the weather is good, it is absolutely gorgeous. The entire island surrounds this one mountain called Mont-Real, Mount Royal. And every Sunday, these things called the Tam-Tams go on where people gather to play the drums at this monument. People are playing in the park, slacklining, and doing acro yoga. Some people come together dressed in suits of foam armor, and they battle one another. It’s a unique and beautiful place and an opportunity for people to come together and connect and just be with nature."
