Nothing is more holiday-centric and festive than seeing colourful streams of flame and balls of fire exploding in the sky...right? Just go with it, because on Saturday, December 6th, Parc La Fontaine will be hosting a free Christmas-themed fireworks show for all to enjoy, so you mine as well get on board with the Christmas + firework correlation.
Part of the Mont-Royal's Santa Clause Parade, the Parc La Fontaine Xmas fireworks show will end the parade and will take place at about 7:45pm over the park's pond. The firework display will be created by Royal Pyrotechnie, with music accompagning the cracks and bangs of the festive fireworks.
Following the fireworks show, Parc des Compagnons (map) only a bit away will be the site of a blues/country/folk Christmas concert put on by Canaille. The show will be entirely free and will begin at 9pm. Be sure to also head to the beginning of the Mont-Royal Christmas Parade, so you can enjoy a full evening of festive fun.
The Free Christmas Fireworks Show at Parc La Fontaine will take place at 7:45pm on Saturday, December 6th 2014. Get more info at the official event listing here.

There's magic in the air and the jingle bells are ringing — wait a minute. It's not Christmas, so what's going on? You're not hallucinating, you're just in Blainville on Montreal's North Shore, taking in the town's Christmas in July celebrations.
During your visit, you'll cross into an illuminated tunnel that'll transport you to a Christmas playground complete with elves, lit-up trees, and other giant decorations including a 25-foot-tall Christmas tree.
There is also a traditional Christmas market, so you can buy your gifts early. VERY early.
Blainville residents have even decorated their homes with Christmas lights to really immerse visitors in the Christmas spirit.
The site is open by reservation only during three time slots: 8:30 p.m., 9:15 p.m. or 10 p.m. You will have 45 minutes to stroll the area and take in all the wonderful sights.
