We’re a little biased when we say Canada is the best country in the world. So what better way to say ‘Happy Birthday!’ to Canada than a fireworks show? That’s why we’ve got you covered with the best firework shows Toronto has to offer this July 1st. Check them out below (and of course in person)!

AMESBURY PARK

WHERE: 1507 Lawrence Avenue West, Toronto
WHEN: July 1 @ 9:45 p.m.

Fireworks will be topping off Amesbury Park 35th Annual Canada Celebration. The day will be filled with fun for everyone. Expect multicultural activities that reflect the mosaic that is Canada, vendors, fun shows and festivities.

ASHBRIDGES BAY PARK

WHERE: 1561 Lake Shore Boulevard East, Toronto
WHEN: July 1 @ 9:30 – 10:15 p.m.

Ashbridge’s Bay is easily one of Toronto’s go-to places for fireworks. After a spectacular show last month for Victoria, we can expect no less for Canada’s birthday. It’s a popular spot for many so get there early and set up to enjoy the show. (But if it’s a bit to crowded, Woodbine Beach nearby is a good spot too).

CANADA’S WONDERLAND
