December 31, 2013: Grande Prairie New Year's Eve Fireworks welcome the beginning of the 100th Birthday for the City of Grande Prairie in Year 2014.


City of GP holds two fireworks displays annually: New Year’s Eve (10pm, December 31) and Canada Day (12midnight, June 30). The fireworks barrages are located in Muskoseepi Park over the Bear Creek Reservoir. Year 2014 marks the 100th birthday of Grand Prairie. So, there could be possibly a third fireworks for this centenary event this year….August Civic Day long weekend or September Labour Day long weekend???

Before the fireworks, Muskoseepi Park Pavilion also holds First Footing New Year’s Eve Celebration with various festivities starting at 6pm to 10pm, such as free outdoor ice skating, snowshoeing, tobogganing, face painting, outdoor performances at the amphitheatre, etc. This year’s New Year’s fireworks bear significance and is the first of the centennial event series for Grande Prairie’s 100th Anniversary.

I went to Grande Prairie Regional College for fireworks photography, since GPRC always has “CHRISTMAS” light display in December. It was a mostly cloudy day with gentle breeze. The temperature was -22oC (wind chill -27oC). It won’t be so bad if you dress properly for the weather. The fireworks last about 15min or so.

December 31, 2013: There were quite a few amazing heart-shaped fireworks tonight, if you videoed it. Photographs won't show it due to streaking effect in long exposure mode.
