Labour Day Weekend at Canada's Wonderland Explodes with Fireworks and Starlight Spectacular

VAUGHAN, ON, Sept. 1, 2011 /CNW/ - As the summer winds down, Canada's Wonderland prepares to end its 30th birthday celebration with a bang.  On Sunday September 4, the Park will light up the sky with a world-class fireworks show by FXWORXS.  The show will feature over 4000 explosions and custom fireworks designed just for Canada's Wonderland, set to a soundtrack of summertime hits.   Beginning at approximately 10:00pm, weather permitting, this show is included with Park admission.

Don't miss out on the final showing of Starlight Spectacular this Saturday night. This innovative show brings Wonder Mountain to life in a spectacular display of lighting and 3D images, while the Royal Fountain dances in an incredible palette of rich colour, and International Street glitters with 300,000 LED lights twinkling from the Park's trees and buildings. Starlight Spectacular will take place at 10:00pm tonight, tomorrow and Saturday night.
