Fireworks on Canada Day at Ashbridges Bay – Toronto

_MG_1844Although the grandest of Canada Day Celebrations takes place on Parliament Hill, Ottawa, our Nation’s Capital, every spot has it’s on little version of the Canada Day festivities.

In Canada’s largest city, Toronto, the fireworks are huge, the crowd turnout is massive, and the Canadiana is out in abundance.

_MG_1813_MG_1811 _MG_1809There’s nothing more Canadian food-wise than beaver tails, poutines, and of course, cold strong beers. And of course, it wouldn’t be a Canada Day celebration without colourful explosives and pyrotechnics.

The crowd was huge at Ashbridges Bay on Toronto’s beautiful waterfront, that faces Lake Ontario. Friends, family, children, and cultures of all kinds gathered to celebrate a Nation that anyone can call their own.

At Woodbine park the musical entertainment was rampant, specifically the crowd was chanting and singing along with a band called Queens Flash – a tribute to the one and only Queen. _MG_1816 _MG_1820 _MG_1817After all the patrons enjoyed their Canuck delicacies, they all glared in the air for the real show and tell that all come out for – the fireworks.

Blasting colours of greens, blues, reds, and purples, the fireworks lit up the sky and dazzled all in attendance. Not to mention the fact that most people in the downtown area could see them from their condo balconies and most of the street level views, if they weren’t blocked by said tall condo buildings.

All draped in red and white, donning the  flag with the maple leaf everywhere they went, it’s clear that this is a country anyone can be proud of, and whether you’re born here, or have been injected into Canadian culture from a land far, far, away, this is a place to call home for anyone from any nation.
