Canada Day FireworksFireworks at La Ronde

Come celebrate Montreal with singer-songwriter Ian Kelly and a wonderful soundtrack crafted by Montrealers themselves.

The opening firework display is a hymn to Montreal. The soundtrack that features music from various styles – cabaret, rock, folk, reggae and even slam, and various eras, from Jacques Normand to Laurence Nerbonne, from Beau Dommage and Charlebois to Gino Vannelli, is an invitation in the heart of the city’s glittering nightlife, from the 40s to today. The soundtrack is a creation of Paul Csukassy, Technical Director of the Montreal competition, and features favourites as voted by Rythme FM’s listeners. It’s a 31st participation for the Italian family business Panzera S.A.S. that returns this time in collaboration with Rozzi’s Famous Fireworks, an American firm which participated six times in the competition. Moreover, Panzera participated in the first competition in 1985, and won the Silver jupiter for their pyromusical display.

The fireworks start at 10 p.m., rain or shine.
