Airdrie’s New Year’s Eve Fireworks officially cancelled

Dec. 16, 2020 / For Immediate Release

AIRDRIE, ALBERTA – The City of Airdrie’s annual New Year’s Eve Fireworks has officially been cancelled. After several discussions regarding the potential of moving forward with NYE Fireworks, the decision to cancel was made to ensure the safety of residents during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We know the cancellation of the New Year’s Eve Fireworks is disappointing as this is a wonderful tradition in our community,” says Mayor Peter Brown. “We worked hard with health authorities to look at alternate options but with new restrictions and COVID numbers still on the rise, the safest choice for Airdrie was to cancel.”

Although celebrations will look different this year over the holiday season, there are still a few activities that families can do together.

“The Airdrie Festival of Lights is still on nightly from now until the end of the month and there are so many beautiful houses that are lit up around Airdrie for people to view from their car or on a walk,” says Michael Dougherty, team leader, Community Development. “We know that this has been an extremely tough year for our community and we continue to be inspired by the community’s perseverance.”
