Veteran airshow pilot and performer John Mrazek in his Harvard Mark IV dazzles audiences with a spectacular aerial ballet you won’t soon forget. Joined by his son Richard, flying a Yakovlev 18T, their aerobatic performances are filled with noise, smoke, skill, and suspense, bringing onlookers to a standstill.

Suggestions for where to watch the Fireworks
There are plenty of good viewing options to see the fireworks, unfortunately you cannot see them from the hotel, what we do recommend is that you walk a few blocks south of the hotel to the Sunset Beach and head west towards English Bay so you can find a spot to see the display. You may not see some of the lower end Fireworks at the eastern end of Sunset Beach, it will however be less congested here!
