2nd Annual Metro Loop Victoria Day Fireworks


At the Caledonia Dam

Join us on Sunday May 19th, 2019 for a night of fantastic fun at the Caledonia Dam.
We're celebrating Queen Victoria's 200th birthday anniversary... with a bang!

The rain date for this event is the following day - May 20th, 2019. Should there be a need to utilize the rain date updates will be communicated here and on the Caledonia Ontario Facebook Page.  If there is rain both nights we'll reschedule to another evening with notifications here and on the Caledonia Ontario Facebook page.

We kept all your favourites - FREE McCafé hot beverages will be available all night long, enjoy live music on the Caledonia Auto Supply Rockin' River Stage, and of course, be dazzled by thousands of fireworks over the Canadian Heritage designated Grand River.

We also listened to your suggestions - we'll be launching fireworks earlier in the evening.

The best part - it's all FREE! Brought to you by Metro Loop, Caledonia Auto Supply, Haldimand County, and the Caledonia Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Schedule of Events:

7pm-all night - FREE McDonald's Coffee - taste the McCafé difference!
7:30pm - 'Star Power' perform on the Rockin' River Stage, sponsored by Caledonia Auto Supply.
Dusk - Fireworks begin when it is dark - Kerr-Boom Pyrotechnics will light up the sky over the Grand River with a fantastic fireworks display in celebration of Queen Victoria's 200th birthday anniversary. They'll be so grand you can see them from Buckingham Palace... though we recommend you get a seat early, and close to the Caledonia Dam for best viewing.

Snacks and Treats for sale by the Caledonia BIA from 7pm
The entire event is free - made possible because of the contributions of our sponsors!
We appreciate free-will donations to help offset the costs of the event, Caledonia Knights of Columbus volunteers will be collecting before the show begins.

Extra Event Info

We're super excited to celebrate with you at the Metro Loop Victoria Day Fireworks on Sunday May 19, 2019! Please keep in mind the following:

No pets - fireworks and amplified music can be upsetting to dogs and other animals, for their safety and the safety of the visitors around them, please keep all pets at home.
No smoking- This event takes place in a public park and there is no smoking permitted on site at any time. This includes vaping.
No alcohol or illegal substances- having a May 24 party in your back yard is one thing, but at this family-party, please don't bring alcohol, marijuana, or any illegal drugs or substances.

The parking lot at the Caledonia Dam near the Tourist Information Centre will be closed from 10am on May 19th until 12am on May 20th. Vehicles will not be permitted access to this area for safety reasons. Event parking is in public parking lots in Caledonia (behind Canada Post/ Scotiabank), beside the Legion, and in areas marked for free on-street parking. Please obey all posted parking regulations.

The Riverwalk pathway will be closed from Noon on May 19th until 12am on May 20th between the Caledonia Dam and Caithness Street. This is because fireworks are vulnerable explosives when they are being wired together and set up. No one will be permitted access into this area under any circumstances. Please obey all posted signs and be courteous to Caledonia Men's Club Volunteers who will be patrolling the area.

This event is approved by Haldimand County, the Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit, and is licensed for public performance by SOCAN.

The Metro Loop Victoria Day Fireworks are organized by a committee of community volunteers under the Caledonia Regional Chamber of Commerce. Chair: Ian Thompson. Committee members: Gail MacLellan, Connor Weston, Krista Damant, & Laurel Werbeski.
