Special Events Society to Ring in the New Year with Fireworks this evening
The inclement weather during Winterfest has provided for an opportunity to provide Prince Rupert residents with one final Fireworks show for 2014, with the Special Events Society making plans for an evening of pyrotechnics over the Prince Rupert Harbour for New Years Eve.
The show, which will see the fireworks barge located off shore of the waterfront, should make for a spectacular setting as Rupertites make ready to welcome 2015.
Rotary Waterfront Park and Mariner's Park, offer perhaps two of the best locations for residents and visitors to make camp for the show.
With a reminder that getting downtown is even easier this evening, as Free Transit is being offered by the City of Prince Rupert, District of Port Edward and BC Transit.
The shells take to the air at 7:30 this evening, thanks to the work of the volunteers from Wainwright Marine and the Fireworks experts of the Special Events Society who will be working through the afternoon in preparation to light up the sky tonight, weather permitting.
You can learn more about the work of the Prince Rupert Special Events Society from their website, twitter feed and Facebook page.
