The 6 best places to watch Canada Day fireworks

Ottawa
Ottawa River, 10:00. Where better to celebrate our country than the capital? Arrive early if you want the best seats, at Jacques Cartier Park, Major’s Hill Park, Victoria Island, or just basically anywhere where you have a clear view out over the river.

Toronto
Ashbridges Bay Park, 9:30 PM. One of the most popular spots in Toronto to view Canada Day fireworks, because what beats lying on the beach, watching fireworks over the lake? Correct answer: nothing. Be sure to snag a good spot early on, because it fills up quickly.

Vancouver
Burrard Inlet, 10:30. This fireworks display will be simultaneously set off at two different barges, Coal Harbour and Dundarave. Over the Pacific Ocean too!

Niagara Falls
Niagara Parks, 10:00. Set against arguably the most popular tourist attraction in Canada, the Niagara Falls, these fireworks are spectacularly beautiful.

Halifax
Halifax Harbour, 10:00. Huge fireworks against the Halifax skyline, near the Atlantic Ocean. Enough said.

Calgary
Centre Street Bridge, 10:45. You can view these fireworks from anywhere along the Bow River. It’s synchronized to live radio music too! Man, I wish I could be there this year…

Keep in mind that all of these cities have many different Canada Day activities beforehand, if you want to check them out. Go show your patriotic Canadian spirit! Or, your unpatriotic Canadian spirit. Let’s face it, everybody wants to be Canadian.

Happy travelling!
