Harbour open late for fireworks

The Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park will be open until midnight today.

To accommodate anticipated boat traffic for those watching Kelowna’s Canada Day fireworks display on Okanagan Lake, the Regional District of Central Okanagan will keep the Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour Regional Park open until midnight today.

Usually between May 1 and the end of September, the park gate in Lake Country is locked each night at 10 p.m.

“Boaters returning later in the evening following the Canada Day fireworks should leave enough time to trailer their vessel and leave the park before the midnight gate closure,” said Bruce Smith, with RDCO.

“In light of the extended late evening boat launch hours, we ask facility users to be respectful of neighbours who live near the park and boat launch.”

The park gate closing will return to the normal 10 p.m. Thursday.
