Bruce Power hosts two spectacular fireworks shows

Thousands watched as Bruce Power presented a spectacular fireworks light show on Saturday, July 16th in Port Elgin.

The community appreciation fireworks that were held in both Saugeen Shores and Kincardine marked the first Bruce Power gatherings in the past two years to celebrate the perseverance and spirit shown throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.  It was also the first time Bruce Power has hosted fireworks in both local communities.

The show lasted more than 20 minutes in a continuous burst of colour over the waters of Lake Huron.  The finale drew gasps and cheers in appreciation from the crowd.
