An annual tradition at the Old Port, every Saturday night sky in December lights up with TELUS Fire on Ice. Dubbed "pyro-musical" shows, spectators can look forward to fireworks -- or feux d'artifice in French -- choreographed to sound. The show usually starts at 8 p.m. (with the exception of the New Year's Eve edition, which starts at midnight) and last about 15 minutes. At the Bonsecours Basin (map).
