Canada Day fireworks are on the way

The beginning of June has arrived and Canada Day is less than a month away.

The beginning of June has arrived and Canada Day is less than a month away.

This year’s Canada Day celebrations kick off with the Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley’s annual fireworks display at one minute past midnight on Saturday, June 30.

Once again, Stoneset Equities has generously allowed the Kinsmen to launch the fireworks from Stoneset’s property east of the Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena in Invermere.

The Kinsmen are now sending out letters to local businesses requesting support for the fireworks.

There are also coin boxes in local stores, where the public may make donations to help ensure another great show this year.

Stay tuned to The Valley Echo and radio station to find out more about Invermere’s Canada Day celebrations as we get closer to July 1.
