Fireworks show canceled for 4th of July

 

June 30, 2022



Due to fire danger, we will reschedule our fireworks show until a safer time. We are sorry that it has come to this decision, as no Fourth of July is complete without fireworks. Several hours have been spent communicating with Haines Borough staff, police and fire departments, and the U.S Forest Service. It was a tough decision for all of us.

As fire danger levels are expected to increase, any accident could have devastating effects, and multiple accidents over great distances would strain first responders.

We encourage you to go BIG celebrating the Fourth, but to monitor and respect burn bans. If you have personal fireworks, please hold them with us for a better time.

Andrew Letchworth, Acting Director of Haines Chamber of Commerce
