Fireworks Back On As Gravenhurst Joins The Rest of Muskoka In Lowering Fire Rating

Still No Daytime Burning Permitted

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.

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