Aug 2 2022, 7:43 pm

You might want to keep your head up on Wednesday night, Montreal. The Old Port’s penultimate fireworks show is taking over the skies.

For the third consecutive week, the L’International des Feux Loto-Québec will set off a mid-week fireworks show, this time paying tribute to England.

Under the theme “60 years of unforgettable music,” Wednesday’s show will offer a “colourful display” dancing to the sound and rhythm of musicals ranging from the 1960s to 2010s.

The show will be put on by UK firm Pyrotex Fireworx, who will incorporate classical masterpieces, jazz, pop, and dance hits, featuring a soundtrack with hits from ABBA, Queen, Bonnie Tyler, Andrea Bocelli, Paul McCartney, and Coldplay.
