A spectacular fireworks display over Smythe Lake will begin at 9:15. Should you wish to bring your pet with you in the parade and to the concerts at Smythe Park on Monday, July 3rd - we would suggest that you take your pet home prior to the fireworks beginning at 9:15 pm since they are more sensitive to loud noises.
