Victoria Day fireworks in Toronto 2015

Victoria Day fireworks in Toronto for 2015 will be centred at Ashbridges Bay, but the waterfront spectacle isn't the only show to be aware of. Along with a host of unofficial ceremonies in parks and on neighbourhood streets across the city, there's also two events worth noting just beyond our borders.

While there's sure to be people who MacGyver their own pyrotechnic displays in backyards citywide, the only official event is at Ashbridges Bay. The show will begin at 10pm on Monday, May 18 and will happen rain or shine. You're going to want to head down early to grab some prime beach real estate and avoid cramped TTC rides.

If you're looking for an even more impressive show - and don't mind trekking out of the city - head to Canada's Wonderland. Fireworks begin at 10pm on Sunday, May 17. You're going to have to cough up the $47.99 admission charge, but you can also strategically position yourself outside of the park for the show. This performance boasts 6,000 fireworks and fire divers jumping from the heights of Wonder Mountain.

Those who live in the west end of the city and want to take in holiday fireworks might consider heading to the annual display at Dundas Driving Park, happening on May 17 at 9:30pm. It might just be faster than navigating across the city, and it's always an impressive show.
