Toronto will ring in 2022 with fireworks over Lake Ontario and a live virtual concert from the CN Tower on New Years Eve.
The 10-minute high-altitude fireworks display will begin at midnight and will be visible on the waterfront from Etobicoke to Scarborough.
“After two unprecedented years in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to celebrate Toronto in the biggest way possible and the start of a new year where our city will come back stronger than ever,” said Mayor John Tory in a press release announcing the festivities. “I hope people will enjoy the fireworks that will stretch across the Etobicoke waterfront in Scarborough and connect to the New Year’s Eve broadcast hosted from the CN Tower.
The CN Tower’s online broadcast will feature a mix of live and pre-recorded performances from concert halls and performing arts in Toronto and will be broadcast on the city’s CultureTO YouTube channel.

This year, the city’s New Years Eve event will not center on Nathan Phillips Square, but the Cavalcade of Lights and public skating will take place in the square until January 7.
