It has been over 30 years since the Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley started the annual Kinsmen Canada Day fireworks that will blast off at midnight on Friday, June 30. 

Record crowds are predicted as the show for all ages will light up the sky over Lake Windermere. The Kinsmen Club would like to thank all of its local sponsors and partners for supporting this celebration.

The fireworks east of Eddie Mountain Memorial Arena in Invermere will begin once the trains have passed safely through the blasting area. Please note there may be a slight delay. 

Invermere Fire Rescue will be on standby to keep everyone safe.

The best places to see the show are beside the arena, Lakeview Road on the east side of Lake Windermere, James Chabot Beach at the north end of the lake, or from one of the many boats that anchor on the lake each year. Homeowners with a view of Mount Swansea will also have a good vantage point.

The Kinsmen Club is asking people to consider making a donation for the fireworks via e-transfer at [email protected]. 

“We thank you in advance for your contribution. If we all donated a toonie, this event would be funded for years, so please lend a hand, this is for everyone,” the Fireworks Committee says.

Anyone with photos of the fireworks is asked to share them on the Club’s Facebook and Instagram accounts – @kinsmenclubofwindermerevalley.
