There will be no fireworks at the Cultus Lake Day celebrations.
Despite obtaining special approval from provincial officials at the Ministry of Forests it was decided to hold off on the fireworks part of the event.
“Cultus Lake Park Board Community Events and Engagement Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the fireworks that were scheduled for this Saturday’s Cultus Lake Day celebration on June 24, 2023,” according to the notice from park board officials on June 20.
They had obtained authorization but park board and committee members are “committed to ensuring events are not just fun but are safe” for the residents of Cultus Lake Park and surrounding areas.
“Considering the current climate and multiple wildfires across Canada, it has been decided that the fireworks show would be better suited for a future event when it is safer to do so.
“We appreciate your understanding and support of this decision and look forward to hosting you all this weekend in celebrating Cultus Lake Park’s 91st Anniversary.
