The Casino du Lac-Leamy Sound of Light Show by the Canadian Museum of History has become the highlight of the summer in the Ottawa/Gatineau area. Throughout five evenings, five designers from five countries will create unique and stunning pyro-musical displays where fireworks are synchronized with an original soundtrack.

The show was first presented in 1996, and since then has featured some of the best fireworks designers from around the world. The grand finale of the show is undoubtedly the event that attracts crowds with their eyes glued to the sparkling sky.

Visitors can view the Lac-Leamy Fireworks at the Canadian Museum of History, the Nepean Point and also at the Bytown Museum (Ottawa Locks). What is more, you can buy tickets to the show that includes performance, dinner service, and an after show musical program.
