VIDEO/SLIDESHOW: Canada Day Fireworks in Campbell River

What a great way to end Canada Day 2018 with the Quality Foods Festival of Lights fireworks.

Despite some occasional light showers and cooler temperatures, Campbell Riverites still came out to enjoy the myriad festivities put on by all the volunteers. From the events in Willow Point to the skate park and downtown for the parade and Shopper’s Row and ending up at Robert Ostler Park for the Quality Foods Festival of Lights fireworks, it was all a blast.
