Magical Montreal

Mado Bar, MontrealWhen Luc Provost transforms into Mado Lamotte, one of Montreal’s most famous drag queens, it’s a magical moment. His over-the-top makeup and costumes make Mado edgy, unique, beautiful and welcoming – much like his native city. And like Provost, Montreal undergoes its own transformation every summer.

Situated in Canada’s Quebec province, Montreal’s winter temperatures can be brutal. The average high is just 13 degrees. But for the months of June, July and August, temperatures pleasantly hover in the 70s.

”Everything happens in the summer – especially after six months of hard winter,” says Mado. ”It is like a new awaking every year.”

Mado believes Montreal is at its best in the summer, and visitors appear to agree. Summer is the peak tourism season, with people from around the world flocking to the historic city to sightsee and participate in a multitude of festivals.
