Courtenay’s 40th Anniversary Centennial celebration

Don’t miss the exciting show that will be filling the sky above the Courtenay Airpark on July 4th. The spectacular fireworks show, sponsored by J.R. Edgett Excavating Ltd., will be a night to remember as the grand finale for the City of Courtenay’s Centennial Homecoming Week.

“We’re happy to be sharing this historic event with the community and sponsoring the fireworks show,” says Bruce Henderson, co-owner of Edgett Excavating, a Comox Valley business celebrating its 40th year. “It’s a big, colourful event that’s exciting for kids to watch, and something that brings back special memories for most of us of when we were kids ourselves.”

The event is free, and starts at approximately 2:45 pm with live music and special performances sponsored by Vancouver Island Insurance Centres, TD Canada Trust, and with support from Slegg Lumber. The lineup includes the K’umugwe Dancers, 7 Storey Circus, the Jilli Martini Band, Reunion, the Lonely Guys, Carlos and Carlita, Azucena Flamenco and The Mutts.

Bring your lawn chair or blanket, and whatever snacks and drinks you and your family will need, and enjoy a fun afternoon of taking in the music, playing at the Rotary Skypark, or sharing the views of the river and estuary.
