Fireworks Display

From its beginnings on Canada Day 2010 – organized by Robert Telka off their cottage dock – the annual CLPOA Fireworks Display has grown to be a spectacular event that draws people from around the Lake and the surrounding community, and elicits comments such as…

It was a fantastic show & fantastic night floating on the water watching. We were thrilled to be part of this community event!

The show is designed and presented by BEM one of Canada’s top pyrotechnical companies and overseen by the Township of North Kawartha Fire Services and the OPP to ensure safety. 


Location: The fireworks will be launched from Chandos Beach, County Road 620.

Date: Sat. Aug. 3, 2019 (Rain date: Sun. Aug. 4)

Time: Dusk (after 9:00 pm)


  • The Fireworks Display can be viewed from the beach – bring your lawn chairs – or the water.
  • Parking is available just north of the Beach at Tom & Sue Forsyth’s property.
  • Please leave your outdoor cottage lights on, no matter where on the Lake you’re located, so the hundreds of boats can safely navigate their return trip to their cottages after the show.


With one major show on the Lake for the enjoyment of all, that’s safe and better for the environment, the CLPOA hopes to encourage cottagers to cancel their own fireworks throughout the summer. And instead, consider donating the money they would have spent to help offset CLPOA costs and make the show even more spectacular!
