CANADA DAY 2023

Update June 27, 2023

A fireworks show will wow the crowds on Beach Avenue this Saturday, capping a full day of events to celebrate Canada Day. Peachland Fire & Rescue received approval from the BC Wildfire Service to hold the annual fireworks show on Saturday, July 1 despite the current provincial ban on fireworks. Fireworks will be discharged from a barge on Okanagan Lake by certified personnel and extra precautions will be taken to ensure fire safety. The fireworks show will begin at 10:30 pm and will be visible from most locations along Beach Avenue.
