This year, Loto-Québec will be presenting the 30th edition of L’International des Feux Loto-Québec. As the largest event of its kind, the vibrant competition remains one of Montreal’s top summer attractions. It seems as though every local has his or her own secret vantage point from which to watch the fireworks, and we can’t deny the fact that La Ronde offers an unbeatable view; however, wouldn’t it be nice to dodge the masses and enjoy the show over food and drinks—all from the comfort of your own seat? We’ve gathered up a list of perfectly located terraces dotted around the city that will surely optimize your view and your experience.

Croisières AML

While this isn’t your typical terrace, Croisières AML offers you front row seats to the fireworks, right on the St. Lawrence River! You can choose from a variety of dinner & fireworks packages (5 Course Gourmet Getaway & FireworksBuffet Diner Cruise & Fireworks, and Red Carpet Package & Fireworks) or you can simply board the cruise and enjoy the one-of-a-kind experience (Cruise & Fireworks). At the end of the show, you can head out on one of their outdoor terraces and enjoy the rest of your evening over some drinks and great music.
