Gravenhurst’s Civic Holiday fireworks display is a-go, now that the powers that be say it’s safe.
The Muskoka Fire Danger Rating had been at extreme for several days, prompting the Town of Gravenhurst to cancel the Muskoka Wharf show. Tuesday morning, Muskoka fire chiefs dropped the rating down to high, which not only lifted a total fire ban, but also allowed for the fireworks display to go as scheduled, on Saturday, August 3rd. The show should start around 9:00, at dusk.
The #Muskoka Forest Fire Danger Rating is now set at "high" …the fire ban has been lifted in #Gravenhurst but daytime burning is still prohibited!— GravenhurstFIRE (@GravenhurstFIRE) July 30, 2019

Should the rating return to extreme, the fireworks would have to be cancelled once again, perhaps postponed until the Labour Day Weekend.
