The 60th Annual Ford Fireworks are right around the corner on June 25th, 2018, and it’s definitely something you won’t want to miss.
A celebration of Canada Day and Independence Day, the Ford Fireworks is a once-a-year opportunity to unite those on both sides of the border.
On the Windsor side, visitors can look forward to viewing the show from the stunning, landscaped Riverside gardens or the Summer Fest grounds. Make sure you arrive early to get the best spots!
The fireworks start promptly at 9:55 p.m. and last until 10:25 p.m.. During that period, over 10,000 pyrotechnic effects will light up the sky to create a truly dazzling and unique experience.
Guests can take advantage of free shuttle services from Devonshire Mall (3100 Howard Ave.) to the fireworks location from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m.
Please be advised that all roads north of Wyandotte St. from Devonshire Rd. to the bridge will be closed after 6 p.m. Local bus routes expected to be impacted by these closures are Transway 1A and 1C, Central 3 West, Dominion 5, Dougall 6, Ottawa 4, and Walkerville 8.
