Canada Day Fireworks 2020

How to watch Canada Day fireworks in Toronto for 2020

Canada Day fireworks in Toronto for 2020 are going to be a different experience, much like everything else this year. Instead of visiting places like Ashbridge's Bay and Canada's Wonderland for an epic lights show in the sky, celebrations are going online.

On July 1 at 10 p.m. wherever you are in Canada you can watch Canada Day fireworks on your mobile device or computer.

Phone users will get an augmented reality experience. Viewers can just point their phone or tablet to the sky for a 3-minute show displaying 3D fireworks. The augmented reality experience will give off the same visual and sound effects as a real fireworks display.

Desktop users will be able to watch a classic video montage of Canada Day fireworks.

In person fireworks can be witnessed if you're attending the ticketed The Drive-In with Dean Brody event in Markham. Ontario's first ever drive-in concert will be followed up by Canada Day fireworks show.

In addition to fireworks, the CN Tower will be doing a Canada Day Light Show livestream also at 10 p.m. The 15-minute visual display will be set to the music of a diverse group of Canadian artists and can be watched on the city's YouTube channel.

If you're looking to do your own Canada Day fireworks this year it's important to know the rulesAccording to the City of Toronto, fireworks on private property are allowed on Canada Day, even without a permit. 

In other words, anyone who wants to use fireworks on their own property on Canada Day is free to do so without any form of permission or permit as long as they comply with the City of Toronto fireworks bylaw (Bylaw 1422-2007, Municipal Code 466).
