Did you go out this year to watch Canada Day, or Independence Day fireworks? What city were you in? I am not sure but I don’t think that I have ever been to the Canada Day fireworks in Victoria, my excuse is young children. Almost the entire time we have lived in Victoria we either had a newborn or a toddler to take care of, and nightfall was way past their bedtime. Never mind the noise which is frightening to me as an adult. This year with a seven and not quite four-year-old we were able to enjoy the fireworks together as a family.
We live close enough to the inner harbour to walk to a viewing location. With the last guests from our Canada Day party we headed down for a prime viewing location. I was amazed at the number of fireworks spectators; the inner harbour was packed and for good reason. The show was fantastic, I was really impressed. If you live in Victoria and you have been sheltered at home with young children make the trek down next year to watch the Canada Day fireworks. Canada only turns 150 once!
