On a recent Tuesday evening a visitor was on his way to visit Shelter Cove and was surprised by the sight while crossing the bridge to the Island. Cars were pulling over to the shoulder to watch our fireworks which were spectacular from that high vantage point.
The fireworks, as part of HarbourFest have been going on for 26 years, and kids of all ages have loved the expectant wait for the big show while watching Shannon Tanner and his traditional entertainment—propeller hat and all.
Take advantage of the ever improving parking plan and enjoy a little ride to the show if parking is tight.
