City of Windsor, Canada
Windsor is the southernmost city in Canada and is located in South west Ontario. It is within Essex County, although administratively separated from the county government. Windsor is located south of Detroit, and the two cities are separated by the Detroit River, with Windsor having views of the Detroit skyline. Each summer, Windsor co-hosts the two-week-long Windsor-Detroit International Freedom Festival, which culminates in a gigantic fireworks display that celebrates Canada Day and US Independence Day. The fireworks display is among the world's largest and is held on the final Wednesday in June over the Detroit River between the two downtowns. Each year, the event attracts over a million spectators to both sides of the riverfront.
