Those looking for a fantastic fireworks display this summer can look no further than Head Lake Park in Haliburton Village.

On July 1 for the first time ever the West Guilford fireworks display will be relocating to downtown Haliburton to coincide with Canada’s sesquicentennial.

The fireworks show which takes place around dusk will be the only component of the Canada Day festivities that will be moved as the daytime events will still take place in West Guilford at the Community Centre.

Organizers are looking forward to another fun-filled West Guilford Canada Day with children’s activities a barbecue horseshoes and more.

This year the fireworks display is being funded by the municipality of Dysart which is putting $5000 towards the light show.

Next year the Canada Day fireworks will be relocated back to West Guilford taking place at dusk over Pine Lake on July 1. There will be a separate event to honour Dysart’s 150th held in Haliburton Village on July 8.
