Mount Forest Fireworks Festival
Mount Forest Fireworks Festival’s Biggest Year Yet!
The annual Mount Forest Fireworks Festival is held every year on the 3rd weekend of July. This year’s festival was held July 15th thru 17th, and the Saturday night fireworks drew the largest crowd to date—with an estimated 7,000 in attendance.
The Ignite The Night Winner
Each year there is a highly anticipated draw, and the lucky winner gets to Ignite the Night and light the evening’s 20 minute fireworks spectacular. This year’s winner was Jean-Claude Desjardins, who ignited the fireworks with the help of Festival Committee members Robin and David Sharpe.
Other favorite attractions include the Classic Car Show with over 500 cars, the family-friendly kids rides, games and activities at Cork Street Park, multiple live shows, art, and entertainment—and lots of delicious concessions.
This year’s festivities were a smash hit, but next year is sure to be even better! Mark your calendar now for the 3rd weekend in July 2017—or learn more at Mount Forest Chamber of Commerce http://mountforest.ca/.
