This was a wonderful experience. Great evening event with the lights (lanterns) and the gardens are very well maintained. The greenhouses are well stocked with beautiful arrangements. Well worth the membership rates if you live in Montreal!

We just lucked in to seeing this display and it was a "wow." We went in the day and the bigger than life dragons, lanterns, and other figures were so colorful and just wonderful. It was well worth the entrance fee.
