"Fireworks festival" Seasonal Events Tip by tuoedisni1

Seasonal Events, Montreal: 24 reviews and 27 photos


Another festival you can experience for FREE in Montreal is the Fireworks festival. It is an international competition so the creativity and quality is second to none.

I saw a few performances in 2006 and my favorite (I may be biased) was the United States. It was amazing and went along perfectly with the music. They won the gold medal for that year, France the silver and Australia the bronze.

The best view that I have found: **Go to Papineau metro and follow the crowds. There is a split in the road where you can go left or straight. Go straight and continue under the bridge. Try to get as close to the river as possible. You should be able to see some of the fireworks on the ground.

Usually held Saturdays and Wednesdays at the end of June/July.

Address: Parc Jean Drapeau
Directions: Tickets are available to view them from the Parc. You can also view them from southern Montreal island.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
