Canada Day 2013 fireworks in Toronto
Canada Day fireworks in Toronto for 2013 will no doubt benefit from the momentum of recent Toronto festivities like Pride (June 21-30) and with the introduction of a "Canada Eve" event. With a handful of noteworthy live performances to accompany the pyrotechnics, this year's fireworks lineup is sure to impress. Not to say that fireworks aren't impressive enough on their own. But still.
