“Where’s the ‘kaboom’?” – Marvin The Martian
CBC Manitoba is reporting that there will be no fireworks at Assiniboine Park this Canada Day.
— CBC Manitoba (@CBCManitoba) May 22, 2018
In a nutshell, there’s two reasons for the decision:
1) Canad Inns are no longer running the event. (They have been for the past 17 years…)
2) The launching spot for fireworks is too close to the build site of the new Diversity Gardens.
The Park will still host a family-friendly party during the daytime…while parties at The Forks, Oak Hammock March & in the Osbourne Village will go on as planned.
