L'International des Feux Loto-Québec
L'International des Feux Loto‑Québec is an international fireworks competition in which major companies, representing their respective country, provide the opportunity to see the latest techniques and innovations in the field of pyrotechnics.
The best way to enjoy this experience is in the grandstands at La Ronde, where spectators have the most expansive vantage point, with musical accompaniment, to view the fireworks in the festive setting of the amusement park.
On the evenings the fireworks are held, the Jacques‑Carter Bridge is completely closed to vehicular and cyclist traffic. This enables the population to walk to the site to enjoy the show and the outstanding views of Montréal and surrounding areas. The Jean‑Drapeau subway station is the fastest way to get to the Jacques‑Carter Bridge area.
The Stewart Museum stays open until 10 p.m. on some of the fireworks nights, which allows the public to tour the exhibits and watch the pyrotechnics show from the yard of the British military depot located nearby.
The fireworks start at 10 p.m., rain or shine.
