OMG heart-shaped FIREWORKS !!! We love our hometown of Montreal for moments like these.

Last night during the Montreal International Fireworks Competition, the United States did a great job putting on a fireworks display to the theme “the Wizard of Oz“. The most touching moment came at the end with fireworks bursting to Judy Garland’s beautiful rendition of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow“. Here are some heart-shaped fireworks that I was able to capture with my iPhone and filtered using Instagram.

Here’s Judy Garland singing her exquisite rendition of Somewhere Over The Rainbow (click here for 6 year-old Connie Talbot’s version). What a fitting ending song to a beautiful fireworks display.

If you’ve ever considered visiting Montreal, do it. It’s a beautiful city, and there are many, many festivals in addition to the fireworks competition.
