Snow or Rain
Snow or rain will not cause the fireworks to be cancelled.
40km/h is the legal limit that we are allowed to shoot fireworks in. Anything over that will result in the cancellation of the fireworks. The direction of the wind is also a major factor. Some parts of the show may have to be cut if the winds become too high, but we would try to get as much of the show launched as possible.
Extreme cold does not affect the fireworks. However, extremely cold weather can affect the outdoor programming.
The conditions will be under constant evaluation. The public will be told about any changes or cancellations on edmonton.ca, and through the City of Edmonton’s Twitter and Facebook accounts. 311 will close at 7pm on New Year's Eve.
