The City of Toronto says those heading out to watch the Victoria Day fireworks display at Ashbridges Bay Park can expect a “spectacular finale.”

In a news release, the City said the free show will start at 10 p.m. and last for 13 minutes.

The event will include 2,000 individual fireworks. It will mark the first in-person fireworks display on Victoria Day in Toronto since 2019.

“It is wonderful to see the return of the spectacular public fireworks display on Victoria Day at Ashbridges Bay,” Mayor John Tory said.
