One of the most spectacular events of a Toronto summer is the annual Benson & Hedges Symphony of Fire. Every year various countries present a musical fireworks extravaganza that brightens the night sky over Ontario Place and the entire city waterfront with dazzling colors and soaring sound. The event starts mid-June and continues on selected nights until mid-July. Though people pay for `front row' seats on the piers of Ontario Place, every inch of shoreline is packed with viewers. Note: Do not expect to drive anywhere along the Lakeshore following the approx. 11:30 pm end of the concert - traffic is at a stand-still for at least an hour. Take a tip - two of the best vantage points for this sound and light extravaganza is atop the CN Tower or on one of the Mariposa Harbour cruise boats.
