New Year’s Eve fireworks show announced

The Prince Rupert Special Events Society said the cancelled Winterfest fireworks show will now go on New Year's Eve.

Joy Sundin of the Prince Rupert Special Events Society told the Northern View that the fireworks show that was cancelled due to poor weather during Winterfest, will now blast off on New Year’s Eve.

“Fireworks (weather permitting) are going to be fired off the barge in the Prince Rupert Harbour on Wednesday, Dec. 31 at 7:30 p.m.,” Sundin said.

She added that the fireworks will be a spectacular early evening show that families and friends can enjoy together. A great way to send out the 2014 year and welcome in 2015.

PRSES also extended a huge thank you to the volunteers from Wainwright Marine and the Pyro Technicians from Prince Rupert Fireworks who create this for our community.
