The best place to view the Fireworks will be on the main festival grounds in front of the stage, as the fireworks will be set to music featuring a variety of Canadian musicians.
Please do not enter the restricted area (fenced off, caution taped) so as to avoid personal injury and for the safety of those shooting off the fireworks. Please note that organizers will be closing the trail that connects the northern and southern parts of the park from 9 pm to 10:30 pm to enlarge the restricted area for everyone's personal safety. There is a 'fall-out zone' along the south-eastern part of the restricted area where fireworks debris may blow, depending on weather. Please keep back and pay attention to the signage in the area. Thank you!
