Photo cred - Tourisme Montreal
In less than two weeks, the skies of Montreal will be painted with coloured fire every single week. Starting June 28th, Montreal's International Fireworks Competition, put on by Loto-Quebec, will end every Saturday with a bang, pun intended, as per usual.
Tickets are on sale for access to the festivals main site on Île Sainte-Hélène, which will be a great place to view the fireworks and see how the artist-pyrotechnics create their murals int he sky. But, real talk, you can enjoy the fireworks from nearly any high-altitude vantage point in the city, so you can save a few bucks.
