Canada Day Fireworks to be Used for Waterfront Opening Event

July 29, 2011 – The remainder of the Canada Day fireworks that were suspended due to inclement

Dates are not yet set for the Waterfront Opening Event but it is anticipated that it will be held in
December. Planning for the event is in the preliminary stages. More details about the celebration will be announced over the next several months.
