4th of July fireworks moved back to St. Marys River

Last year, the fourth of July fireworks were not visiable on this side of the river. That’s because they had to be moved to a new location due to the on-going construction of the new super lock. That meant Canadians couldn’t view them – a summer-time tradition.

This year however, the fireworks return to the east side of the Soo Locks over the St. Mary’s river.

The fireworks will be launched at dusk on Thursday, July 4.

“This year’s Fourth of July fireworks will take place on the Army Corp of Engineers property providing residents and visitors the opportunity to view the fireworks from the Downtown and along the waterfront.” said, City Manager, Brian Chapman.

City Staff worked with Staff members from the Army Corp of Engineers and Kokosing to provide the necessary space for the fireworks while minimizing any disruptions to the Locks construction project. “

We are excited to have the fireworks back to its traditional location. Many thanks to the staff members with the Army Corp and Kokosing for taking the lead on this and making it happen.” Chapman said in a statement to media.
