Eyes to the sky on New Year's Eve

Fireworks launch at 8:30 p.m. from Meadowview Ball Diamonds

There is a great deal of man-made and nature-made uncertainty taking place around the world currently. And for that reason alone, many are delighted to put 2023 in the rear-view mirror. 

The City of St. Albert will blow away the old year and start 2024 on New Year’s Eve with a bang. It will host a large fireworks display that is predicted to attract large crowds enjoying our mild winter weather. 

As the gong strikes 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 31, the fireworks will launch at Meadowview Ball Diamonds. However, for public safety the site will be closed to the public. 

The free fireworks display is visible across a large area of central St. Albert. Several prime viewing spots that capture the magic and make lasting memories are Red Willow Trail near the Children’s Bridge, Lions Park, Millennium Park and behind St. Albert Place on the south bank of the Sturgeon River. 

The pyrotechnics are usually started with a test launch to determine wind direction and intensity. Once the weather is safe, computers will launch each shell and rocket for maximum effect. The dazzling plumes of light and kaleidoscope of colours cascading across the night sky are close to 20 minutes in length. 

Street parking will not be available on Mission Avenue for this event and attendees are encouraged to check with St. Albert Transit for the New Year’s Eve schedule.
