The Big Blast in Montreal

By Linda Tancs

Starting this Saturday through 14 August the rockets will be blazing at Montreal’s LaRonde, the largest amusement park in Québec. Since 1985 they’ve been hosting an international fireworks competition, now known as L’International des Feux Loto-Québec. Facing off this year will be the U.S., Canada, Italy, Taiwan, Poland, Portugal, Sweden and France. Don’t miss the tribute to Celine Dion on 10 July, a 30-minute fireworks display set to her greatest hits (in French and English). The event will culminate with the Jupiter Awards ceremony.
