Fireworks will light up the sky over Ottawa and Gatineau Saturday night when a spectacle billed as the 'largest display of summer fireworks in the country' arrives to brighten things up.
The 15-minute show, called Illuminate, is a collaboration between Casino Lac-Leamy's annual Sound of Light competition and the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival.

With both events cancelled this year due to COVID-19 restrictions, organizers came up with a new idea.
'When we realized that our event could not take place in its usual form, I wanted to imagine an out-of-the-ordinary alternative that would make an impression,' said Marc-Antoine Massicotte, president and CEO of the Casino Lac-Leamy Sound of Light.
Beginning at 9 p.m., fireworks will blast off from eight sites across the National Capital Region, lighting up the sky from east to west.
