- Five (5) day celebration
- Dates change annually
- Fireworks are only allowed on two of these days, which are specified each year.
- New Year’s Eve
- Or by obtaining a special permit
All other type of fireworks that could travel more than three metres (10 feet) are banned, (e.g. roman candles, flying lanterns, skyrockets, and barrages). It is illegal to buy, sell, possess or use long-range fireworks.
Use of personal fireworks is not permitted on school property, in parks and on any City land, including streets and sidewalks.
The safety of our residents is of primary importance. When using short-range fireworks, residents must follow safety precautions:
- You must have a container of water or a hose line that’s filled with water available to extinguish fireworks
- You must never light a firework or hold a lit firework in your hand, other than a sparkler
- After using sparklers, place them in a container of water to fully cool before disposal
- Allow all fireworks to fully cool before disposal
