At least you had fire works. As former long time residents of Tumbler Ridge, we always enjoyed the fantastic fireworks display during and around the Canada Day holiday. I don’t recall that they were always on the Canada Day evening but I do know that what ever day it was, we thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated them. The Canada Day events in TR were always advertised in the local paper and we always knew when they would be. We now reside in Smithers and there were no fireworks here. We really missed this aspect of celebrating Canada Day. Instead of being unhappy about them being on the ‘wrong’ evening, just be happy that you had fireworks at all. And to the TR fire department, WAY TO GO!
