There were all kinds of creative ventures planned for Montreal’s 375th birthday such as the performance of the Royale de Luxe giants.

Another impressive venture was the lightshow display on the Jacques Cartier bridge. The project is called “Living Connections” and the bridge corporation calls it a showcase of the city’s creative and engineering talents. If you missed it, you can watch it here.
