Fireworks light the night

Halloween fireworks take place in virtually every community outside of Vernon with most starting around 8 p.m.

After all the little ghosts, goblins, Minions and Elsas have tuckered out from trick or treating, the skies will light up with fireworks across the North Okanagan.

Halloween fireworks take place in virtually every community outside of Vernon with most starting around 8 p.m.

Warm up around the bonfire at the BX-Swan Lake Fire Department, starting at 6:30 p.m. before a “spectacular” light show at 8 p.m.

“It will be bigger and better than normal,” said chief Bill Wacey, who reminds residents that the department will unfortunately not be hosting a concession due to the construction at the hall.

Head to Kal Beach in Coldstream for a bonfire and hot chocolate at 7 p.m. The beach and boat launch parking lots will be open for motorists.

“The fireworks will be shot at 8 p.m. sharp,” said Coldstream fire chief Dave Sturgeon, thanking residents who supported the show during the recent boot drive.

The Lavington Fire Department also has a night light show for kids big and small at Centennial Park at 8 p.m., after the concession at 6 with hamburgers, hot dogs, chilli and borscht.

In Lumby, the fire department sets fireworks off at J.W. Inglis at 8 p.m.

Cherryville also lights up the sky at 8, but come early to Hanson Park to check ut the haunted house for kids at 6 p.m.

The Armstrong fairgrounds will be the centre of activity, starting at 7 p.m. with a bonfire, hot chocolate and hotdogs. The Armstrong/Spallumcheen Fire Department lights up the skies at 7:45 p.m.
