The second half of the summer marks and kicks-off a very important weekly festival: The International Fireworks Festival.
Throughout the month of July and August, the city hosts massive and stunning fireworks show every weekend that can be seen from most areas - if you're located in the southern part of the island.
That said, there are a couple of rooftop restaurants and bars that offer fireworks viewing, usually for a small entry fee. For example, Clock Tower Beach in the Old Port hosts a fireworks evening and entry is only $5.
However, nothing compares to watching the fireworks from the tip top of the tallest skyscraper in the city, Place Ville Marie.
Observatoire Place Ville Marie is hosting an event called <<Feux Au Sommet>> With a 360-degree view on the 46th floor, this is the highest place in town to watch these explosions of light. Check out this insane view!
Can't make it this weekend? Don't worry! Here are all the other nights that fireworks shows are scheduled. July 7, July 11, July 14, July 18, July 21, July 28, August 1st and August 8. Mark your calendars now!
Although you should note that Observatoire Place Ville Marie will only be open for fireworks viewing on the 14th, 21st, and 28th.
