It’s a Canada Day tradition in Prince George.
After a great day of enjoying the Canada Day festivities in Fort George Park, the community gathers to watch the fireworks show. Two years ago the show moved from the park to the Exhibition Grounds, and has been very well received in the new location, which provides greater viewing vantage points throughout the city.
The Prince George Free Press and the Wolf radio station have teamed up to organize the event over the past couple of years. And it has been a great success.
But it takes money to put the fireworks show on. About $15,000. And a major sponsor or sponsors are needed to ensure the show goes ahead this year.
“The Canada Day Fire Works Show has been a great family event at Exhibition Park the last two years and if it is not feasible to have them this year, we look forward to working with the Prince George Free Press and other sponsors to host them in 2010,” said Deborah Meyer, community arenas coordinator.
All that is needed this year, though, are sponsors.
“One major sponsor or several smaller sponsors are all that’s required for the show to go on,” said Phil Beaulieu, Free Press advertising manager.
Potential sponsors can reach Beaulieu at the Free Press, 250-564-0005.
