トロントで迫力の花火を見る!

Fireworks04

カナダでは日本と違ったルールに気づくことがあります。そのひとつが花火。花火が上がるのは(個人で上げるのも)「祝日のみ」と決められています。こうした事情があるため、お祭り好きなカナダ人は「花火」と聞くと大勢集まってくるのです。

夏に花火が行われる主な日付

「ビクトリア・デー」5月19日(月)
「カナダ・デー」7月1日(火)
「レイバー・デー」8月31日(日)

このように、たったの3日・・・頻繁には行われていないので、トロント旅の滞在中に日程が合えば、ということでトロントの花火をご紹介します。特にオススメは、カナダの建国記念日前日にハーバーフロントと呼ばれるオンタリオ湖畔で行われる花火。ぜひご覧頂きたいイベントです。

以下日付を追って順にご紹介します。

5月18日(月)「ビクトリア・デー」の花火
下記2カ所での開催です。アッシュブリッジズ・ベイは周辺にレストランが何もない公園なので、ちょっと離れた「ビーチズ」というオシャレな街の湖畔から遠目に花火を見るというのも良いかもしれません。

■アッシュブリッジズ・ベイ公園
トロントのダウンタウンからはクイーン・ストリートを走るストリートカーに乗り、東へ約20分。ビーチズと呼ばれるエリアの手前になります。(位置関係は下記地図を参照)

■花火の鑑賞ポイント
花火は例年午後9時45分スタートで、10分ほどで終了しますが、迫力があってきれいな花火が上がると地元では好評です。会場はオンタリオ湖畔のビーチ(砂地)で、花火が上がるのはオンタリオ湖に突き出した森のようになっている場所ですので、近くで見るもよし、すこし離れて見るもよし。当日は、会場付近はかなり混雑しますので、少しだけ早めに会場に向うのがオススメです。

5月18日(日)「ビクトリア・デー」、7月1日(火)「カナダ・デー」、8月31日(日)「レイバー・デー」の花火

■カナダズ・ワンダーランド(Canada’s Wonderland)
若者が集まる巨大遊園地は、トロントから地下鉄・バスを乗り継いで約1時間半。クルマなら40分弱と、ダウンタウンからのアクセスはちょっとだけ難易度が高いですが、花火の日にはかなり盛り上がります。
子供から大人まで楽しめる遊園地として、北米で最も数が多いと言われる16基のジェットコースターをはじめ、夏期営業の「Splash Works Waterpark」、スヌーピー満載の「Planet Snoopy」など盛りだくさん。

なお花火は、ビクトリアデーの前日5月18日(日)、7月1日(火)、8月31日(日)の3回、午後10時スタート

6月30日(月)「カナダ・デー」前日の花火

カナダ建国記念日「カナダ・デー」より一日前に、特別に行われる「OLG Canada Eve Fireworks」花火は、大変印象的です。

ダウンタウンからもアクセスの良いハーバーフロントが会場で、ここはユニオン駅からバスで1駅のオンタリオ湖畔に面した東西約3キロのエリア。シュガービーチ、ボードウォーク、H2Oパーク、マリーナをはじめ、帆船ツアーやボートクルーズ、トロント・アイランドへアクセスする市営フェリーやウォーター・タクシーなどの発着場があり、西のはずれにはエアポートもあります。(位置関係は下記地図を参照)

もともとハーバーフロントのカナダ・デーの花火と言えば今は休業中の「オンタリオ・プレース」が有名でしたが、休業してしまったのでしばらくお休みの後、昨年場所を変えて復活したと言えるでしょう。昨年は初年度ということで情報がほとんどありませんでしたが、いざ始まってみるとかなりな時間様々な花火が上がり、ほんとうにビックリしてしまいました。

花火の鑑賞ポイント
まずはハーバーフロントを散策しながらポイントを探す場合は、H2Oパーク周辺まで歩くと見晴らしがいいでしょう。座って花火を見たいという場合は、クイーンズキーというビルの1階にパティオがあるので、そこからだと花火もバッチリ見えそうです。

ちょっと冒険したいという方は、トロント・アイランドがオススメです。写真はトロント・アイランドまでフェリーで行き、湖畔からダウンタウンを望むポイントを探して撮影したものです。CNタワーを背景にして花火を見ようと、フェリー乗り場を降りて向って左手の湖畔に陣取って始まるのを待ちました。
実際に花火が上がるポイントは湖畔からすこし離れた湖上に専用の打ち上げ用の筏(いかだ)が浮かべられていて、そこからの花火でしたが、ちょうどCNタワー正面に花火が上がって、ラッキーでした。

この時期のトロントは日が沈むのが遅く、花火のスタートは午後10時過ぎの日没を待って始まります。当初は午後10時と発表されていましたが、実際この日に花火が始まったのは午後10時50分。最後の花火が打ち上がったのが午後11時10分過ぎでした。ダウンタウンへ戻るフェリーの時間が気になりましたが、最終便の一本手前、午後11時半に乗り、花火終了後難なく戻る事ができました。
トロントアイランドは蚊が多いので、行かれる方は虫除け必須ですが、蚊に刺されてもいいかなと思うほど美しいトロントの摩天楼を背景にした花火を見ることができます。トロントは安全な街ではありますが、花火終了が夜遅くなるので、タクシー等を利用して安全にホテルなどに戻られることをおススメします。

今年もハートマークの花火が上がるでしょうか? 楽しみです。

■ナイアガラの滝の花火も
今年はナイアガラの新ボートクルーズ「ホーンブロワー(HornBlower)」がすでにこの時期営業を開始していますので、6月28日(土)の「サンセット・カクテルクルーズ(Sunset Cocktail Cruise)」でワイン片手にナイアガラのイルミネーションをながめたり、6月29日(日)に「ナイアガラの滝イルミネーション/花火クルーズ(Falls Illuminations/Fireworks)」に乗ってクルーズ船からナイアガラの滝上空にあがる花火を眺めた後トロントに戻り、「カナダデー・イブ」の盛大な花火を見るという「花火三昧」というテーマで旅を組み立てると、さらに思い出深い旅になるでしょう。

今年は特に、1864年9月1日〜9日までプリンスエドワード島のシャーロットタウンで行われた、カナダ建国を議論した歴史的な「シャーロットタウン会議」開催から数えて150周年の年。3年後にはカナダ建国150周年を迎えるとあって、今年は記念の年に向けてのキックオフという意味合いもあります。

「カナダ・デー」のイブに行われるトロントの花火をフィナーレにして、ちょうど行われている「トロント・ジャズフェスティバル」と「プライド・パレード」を組み合わせ、ナイアガラの花火も加えると下記のような日程を組む事ができます。個人でトロントを旅行先として選んだ場合を想定したものですので、旅のプラン作成の参考にご覧下さい。

この日程で一番難しいトロントからナイアガラへの移動の確保ですが、ナイアガラエアバスというシャトルバスを使うと、時間指定でホテルからホテルに直接行くことができます。

    自分の髪を使う薄毛手術は、髪の毛が薄い人には、素晴らしく髪の毛が増加するので世界的に人気があるオペです。ただし専門知識が豊富な専門技術者に手術を申し込まないと劇的な効果は得られません。養毛剤に比べて、合計の支払額も少なくなるのでCPが高い薄毛治療と言えます。
