Canada Day is just a few weeks away, and this year it will look different for residents in Estevan and area, even as restrictions ease amid the pandemic.
Fireworks will be set off in the Estevan Exhibition Grounds at dusk on July 1.
“We have arranged the fireworks to be set off, up to 800 feet instead of the typical 500 to 600 feet so they can be viewed from further distances,” shared event manager, Diane Wenham. “With this higher elevation, residents can watch the show better from the comfort of their own home.”
There will be limited parking at the Exhibition Grounds with flag people to direct parking.
Recently, the Town announced that they would postpone their celebrations until the fall, they are aiming for September. Bienfait has been an excellent host to Canada Day celebrations with a parade, tradeshow, baseball tournament, outdoor swimming and their outstanding fireworks display, to name a few.
“The Town of Bienfait is welcoming the City of Estevan’s efforts to keep some normalcy for July 1,” shared Town of Bienfait Mayor Paul Carroll. “We look forward to the City of Estevan joining forces with the Town of Bienfait in the future to make the fireworks even more outstanding.”
“Consumer Fireworks are not permitted for use within City of Estevan boundaries,” shared Fire Chief Dale Feser. “Please take every opportunity to enjoy the display from the comfort of your own home.”
Thanks to the Estevan Exhibition Association for the use of their grounds.
