Fireworks and Light Show | 11 pm
Don’t miss the magnificent light and music show on Edmonton’s High Level Bridge, created by Edmonton lighting designer Scott Peters and musician Jason Kodie. The spectacular fireworks display over the river valley that follows will ensure that you end Canada Day with a bang! Prime viewing locations are the Alberta Legislature Grounds, Victoria Park, Ezio Faraone Park, Dantzer’s Hill and Government House Park, but be aware of any road closures.
