Canada Day isn’t far away now, which means the annual Kinsmen’s Fireworks display is fast-approaching to kick off the celebration.
The fireworks will be on display one minute after midnight, the night of Thursday, June 30.
The display will be set off just east of Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena in Invermere.
The Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley would like to extend their thanks to Stoneset Equities for allowing the use of their property as the fireworks’ launching pad once again this year.
The Kinsmen would also like to thank the local businesses who have been very supportive of the event and for their contributions for the show.
The public can also keep the fireworks display alive and well by making a contribution at one of the many donation boxes set up in various stores in Invermere, or by contacting the Kinsmen at Box 2039 in Invermere.
“It’s amazing, the number of people who come out to watch it,” said Steve Mantyka, fireworks chairman for the Kinsmen Club. “There are many great viewing places, and this is a great way for people to start their Canada Day weekend.”
Among the spectacular viewing locations are the area just beside the arena, Lakeview Rd. (on the east side of Lake Windermere), Athalmer Beach (at the north end of the lake), or from any of the many boats that anchor in the lake each year.
“We like to promote it as a way to be Canadian and celebrate it loudly and proudly,” said Mantyka.
