A series of loud explosions that had Toronto buzzing on Sunday night were merely fireworks at Polson Pier.
Just after midnight, by now Monday morning, Toronto police confirmed that the noise was a celebration and nothing to be alarmed about.
However, it appears that many people in the area didn’t know about the fireworks, and were alarmed by the noise.
.@EA_FinPlanner Yes…There are fireworks being set off near Polson Pier. ^dh

Are there fireworks going off at 11:30pm on a random Sunday or are we being invaded? What the hell is going on? #Toronto

Anyone else hearing loud bangs in East York, Toronto? Is Nov 8 a fireworks thing?

Both equally happy about an unexpected fireworks show and super confused as to why there was an 11:30PM Sunday show! #Toronto
