With the largest sidewalk sale in Canada and the city's first-ever Shoni Market filling Sainte-Catherine Street West with a seemingly neverending line-up of street food, we didn't think that the weekend could get any better.
Thing is, it did: A corgi party went down on Saturday, September 11, and it was positively paw-some.

By our count, we saw 100 fluffy butts happily playing with one another (200 registered to be there in total) for a few hours at the park across Rene-Levesque Boulevard from the Canadian Architecture Centre, in the Ernest Cormier Esplanade. Corgis both famous and not were in attendance, as well as many other beautiful doggos with owners who just wanted to party.
After meeting up, everybody walked towards the Shoni Market on Sainte-Catherine Street West to hang out in front of a giant boom box.
The event was so successful that organizers have told Time Out Montreal that an event has already been scheduled for next year. "We're already planning for a corgi party in 2022," Thien Vu Dang of YATAI MTL said, "and we already have lot of ideas to make it more awesome." The event listing can be found here.
