A bit of a treat to end 2017 with a big fireworks display at Exhibition Park December 31st.
New Year's Eve in Lethbridge this year is going to feature a fireworks display. The fireworks scheduled for Whoop-Up Days back in August had to be cancelled because of dry conditions and the extreme fire hazard at the time. Exhibition Park Marketing Manager, Doug Kryzanowski says those fireworks will now be set off December 31st as a celebration to end 2017 and kick off a brand new year. He says the display should last about 20 minutes or so and is free for everyone to come watch in the south parking area at Ex Park. The fireworks will be set off starting at 9:00 pm New Year's Eve. Kryzanowski says the fireworks will also be a great way to close out both Canada's 150th birthday as well as Exhibition Park's 120th anniversary. - Pat Siedlecki
