Drumheller and area residents will get to enjoy a fireworks show again this year when the town gets together for the annual Festival Of Lights next month.

Bill Wulff, who oversees the annual July 1 fireworks display in Drumheller, is in charge of this show as well.

"The thing that they did change this year is the fireworks is at the start, so it's at 8:00, not 9:30," he told Drum FM. "So you have a chance to get the younger ones out to see the fireworks."

Wulff noted the Canada Day fireworks are always scheduled late, around 11:00 p.m., so kids are often already in bed.

The fireworks are just a part of the festivities on November 17.

"April Harrison from the town, she's the one that started (the event) where they put all the Christmas trees out on the sidewalk, and the barrel heaters and that kind of stuff for the party."

"The entire downtown is the parking lot; if we had it at the ski hill then we'd have to arrange for transportation to get everyone out to the ski hill and there's nowhere to park them all," added Wulff. "And it's high enough up on the hill: I know that there's people who can sit on their roofs in Cambria and watch the show."
