Last Night's Dominion Day Fireworks ...

... from Mississauga's City Centre. Billed by the Mississauga News as "City Hall Marks Canada Day With A Bang," correspondent Chris Clay reports:

The night sky above City Hall will be filled with streaks of light and flashes of colour when the City of Mississauga celebrates Canada Day with a massive fireworks display.

The July 1 display is being organized by award-winning StarLite Pyrotechnics.

The fireworks, which are slated to start at about 10 p.m., will be launched from five rooftop locations at City Hall."We've designed the display to highlight the architecture and incorporate City Hall into the presentation," said StarLite Pyrotechnics president Ray Brazeau. "Hopefully, everyone can come out and for 20 minutes be a kid again."

It has been 20 years since fireworks graced the City Centre sky. The return of the colourful explosions is due, in large part, to Ward 6 City councillor Carolyn Parrish, who raised more than $200,000 for the display."

It will be a spectacular evening...and a finale featuring 15 to 20 minutes of pyrotechnics of international calibre," Parrish previously told The News. "It will be a show second to none in the GTA — and it's all free."

So, for your viewing pleasure, here are some photos:
