I am exploring visiting Montreal during the High Lights festival. I am looking for any advice for visiting Montreal during the festival: can't miss attractions, shows/concerts, dining, drinking, Nuit Blanche. I understand that the full details haven't been released yet but if you have a past experience I am interested to hear. In addition, what area of Montreal is a good one to stay in where it is close to the festival but not directly in the festival.
I appreciate the advice.
