Community fireworks on October 29

Posted on Friday, October 20, 2023 02:41 PM

We're excited to offer a community fireworks display on Sunday, October 29, at 7:30 p.m.

Fireworks will be set off from the Riverlodge Recreation Centre parking lot. To allow for the display, the parking lot will be closed at 4:30 p.m. that afternoon.

This comes in the evening following the family Halloween Howl event.

While this community display is a special event, remember that personal fireworks can only be set off on Halloween itself.
