Niagara, Ontario – The record-breaking high water levels of Lake Ontario won’t stop fireworks from lighting up the sky in Port Dalhousie on Canada Day.

The Port Dalhousie Lions Club normally sets off its dazzling Canada Day fireworks display from Lakeside Park but will be unable to this year due to safety concerns associated with the record water levels in Lake Ontario. Instead, the Lions Club will set off its annual Canada Day fireworks from Henley Island.

The fireworks display starts at 10 p.m. Access to Henley Island will be closed during the fireworks show. Residents can view the fireworks from Rennie Park, Jaycee Park and the surrounding area. Admission is free. A rain date is set for Sunday, July 2 at 10 p.m.
