L’International des Feux Loto-Québec Unveils its 2019 Programme

35th Anniversary of La Ronde’s World Renowned Fireworks Competition

MONTREAL, QC. — April 23, 2019 — La Ronde proudly present the 35th edition of L’International des Feux Loto-Québec (IFLQ) in collaboration with Tim Hortons, from June 29 through July 27, 2019. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the world’s most prestigious fireworks competition and celebrates its vibrant history. The season will kick off with a rendition of the best songs of 1985, an homage to the year when it all began. Staying with the theme of nostalgia, the programme will also feature six world-renowned firms as well as a special tribute to Casino de Montréal’s 25th anniversary.

For the past 34 years, Montrealers have been privileged to experience this masterful array of lights and sounds, said La Ronde Park President, Janine Durette. “La Ronde is proud to be the host of the world’s leading fireworks competition, often referred to the Olympic Games of Fireworks.”

Starting June 29, all eyes will be staring at the skies over Montreal as it lights up with dazzling fireworks on Saturday and Wednesday nights for the most anticipated event of the summer. Since its inception in 1985, L’International des Feux Loto-Québec has become one of the most beloved jewels of Montreal and the envy of the entire world. Drawing more than three million viewers year after year, the event has launched 305 fireworks displays, hosted 99 pyrotechnical firms from 29 countries and has elicited over 100 million of “oohs and “ahhs.” In honour of the event’s 35th anniversary, the season lineup will open with a spectacular homage to the best music of 1985, a show presented by Gouvernement du Québec. This visual spectacle will also take audiences on a journey through time, from mythology and folklore, to the landing of the first man on the moon, to nostalgic TV shows and movies. Over the course of six nights, the world’s greatest pyrotechnic artists representing South Korea, Italy, Portugal, the United States, Canada and Australia will compete to win the heart of audiences and win the most prestigious award in the industry, the Gold Jupiter. The competition will be capped off by a tribute to Casino de Montreal’s 25th anniversary featuring a soundtrack of some of the best French Quebec songs of the past 25 years curated in collaboration with Gregory Charles, who will also be performing live for this special occasion.
