    2009 Fireworks Festival

    Greetings all

    I remember going to the waterfront years ago to watch the fireworks on a Saturday night.. If I remember correctly, the night before the Canadian Grand Prix.


    As I will be returning on June 20th, I see that the festival will be on showcasing Spain..

    So I need to ask...anyone have the " ideal place " to view the fireworks from ? I figured to head down to Old Montreal...

    Any suggestions would be appreciated....


    Best Regards

    The best place would be on Jacques-Cartier bridge, which is closed to car-traffic and opened for pedestrians on firework nights. Another great place is on Notre-Dame street(also closed) close to Delorimier street or under the Jacques-Cartier bridge.

    Igna...I guess that I am a little kid at heart.

    The show usually lasts for about 20-30 minutes, if I recall correctly. Other than the 4th of July Macy's fireworks in NYC, or NYE in Amsterdam , this one is just as good....

    Thanks Pokerpro for the logistcal information.

    On or under the bridge is the best place, old montreal is a little far away and you don't get the full effect from this distance.
