Watch for Free
Come down to the Old Port's Clock Tower Beach (a small admission fee applies for access to the beach but you can stand by the clock tower free of charge), get a good view from Parc Jean-Drapeau or walk up the Jacques-Cartier Bridge for a choice spot, which closes itself off to car traffic as of 8 p.m.
Pay to See
Splurge a little and see them synchronized to music, up close with the judges at La Ronde, just in front of the Lac des Dauphins. It's a nice treat and more impressive than viewing for free from a distance, albeit pricey for a 30-minute show. So plan for a day trip: all fireworks tickets, varying from $43.64 to $63.64 plus taxes, grant a full day's admission to all of La Ronde's rides and roller coasters. Parking at La Ronde on the day/eve of fireworks is $20.
Same Time, Rain or Shine
All shows are scheduled at 10 p.m. Motorists should be aware that for all presentations, the Jacques-Cartier Bridge closes at 8 p.m., only reopening at the end of each show.
