Light Up the Night fireworks display set for Dec. 22nd

Cranna Lake is now fully frozen and open to the public for skating and tobogganing

In keeping with recent tradition, the Light Up the Night fireworks are being held at 8 p.m. on Dec. 22nd at Cranna Lake, allowing residents to celebrate the holiday season with family and friends.

Cranna Lake is now fully frozen and open to the public for skating and tobogganing. Organizers will have the fire pits on hand to keep everyone toasty, and Tim Horton’s will be on-site with their community truck providing hot chocolate and coffee for all.

“If you have not seen the spectacular fireworks display against this beautiful wintry backdrop, it is really is a remarkable sight, so dress warmly and join in the festive fun,” noted a release.

Residents are advised that the Cranna Lake pathway, from approximately the football field west to the trail running adjacent to City Hall (see above map), will be closed from 3:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to accommodate preparation for the fireworks show.
