UPDATE: July 1, 2023 @ 7:40 PM

Unfortunately, the rain and thunderstorm risk do not appear to be subsiding according to Environment Canada's forecast. 

As a result, we are cancelling the remaining portion of tonight's event EXCEPT FOR FIREWORKS

Fireworks are anticipated to proceed, even in the rain, as scheduled around 11:00 PM. Should we begin to experience wind gust above 45 km/hour, we will have to cancel the fireworks but, at present time, they are proceeding.
