The Casino Lac-Leamy Sound of Light 2019

An unforgettable experience in the Outaouais region

Come and enjoy a unique event in the Outaouais region with family or friends, sit comfortably on the banks of the Ottawa River and contemplate amazing displays that light up Ottawa/Gatineau’s sky. From August 10 to August 24, 2019, every Wednesday and Saturday evening, at the Canadian Museum of History in the Hull sector in Gatineau will be held the Casino Lac-Leamy Sound of Light. Come and enjoy these 5 nights filled with lights, music, fireworks and entertainment.


The Casino Lac-Leamy Sound of Light is an annual international fireworks competition that illuminates the sky of Ottawa/Gatineau during 5 nights of spectacular shows on the Ottawa River. This year, four world-renowned pyrotechnic professionals will present their pyromusical art show to the crowds and judges in the hope of winning the Zeus trophy. Fireworks enthusiasts have the chance to meet in the backyard of the Canadian Museum of History to see performances from Chile, Italy, Greece, France and the Grande Finale.

On the site of the event, there is a family area, a food court to taste delicious snacks and meals, and an SAQ bistro for you to discover many specialties. The Canadian Museum of History is only a short walk from the National Capital, and a stone’s throw from downtown Hull. Take the opportunity to spend part of the day in one of the museum's exhibition, to visit the Casino Lac Leamy or to enjoy a tasty meal in one of the restaurants of Old Hull!
