Tam Tam is a free ‘festival’ that takes place every Sunday in Montreal around the Georges-Etienne Cartier monument in Parc Mont Royal. It is a drum and dance activity that is almost like a tradition for locals and a popular hit for tourists.
Tam Tam starts at around noon and continues until sunset. Hundreds of people gather there to picnic, walk on ropes, sword fight, play Frisbee, throw balls around, smoke, take in the sun, or just people watch. It truly is one of the most entertaining things to do on a non-rainy Sunday.
The photos (taken on June 1st) will give you a better idea. It truly is a wonderfully spirited event that makes sure you’re not bored on Sunday!
