Fireworks postponed because of weather during the 1864 Week celebrations will be held for Charlottetown’s New Year’s eve celebrations, city officials have announced.
1864 Week, the free six-day festival held earlier this month, marked the 150th anniversary of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference of the Fathers of Confederation and the importance it played in the building of Canada.
The week-long concert series was expected to include fireworks Saturday, June 14. Weather forced organizers to move the fireworks to Sunday, June 15, but once again weather cancelled the show.
Officials with the city met and have decided to hold off until New Year’s eve with the display. However, capital city residents will be treated to a huge fireworks display on July 1, so big the city is now billing it as the largest fireworks display in Canada.
