If the weather doesn’t cooperate, a modified event will take place at The Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre from 6 – 10 p.m. Bring your skates and helmets!
Banff Central Park, 12 a.m.
Count down the last minutes of 2023 and celebrate the arrival of 2023 with low altitude, low noise pyrotechnics.
These are family-friendly events so please leave alcohol and cannabis at home.
Since 2018, the Town of Banff has used pyrotechnics display rather than traditional fireworks to decrease the noise impact on wildlife, as a responsible measure in a national park. Even though the use of pyrotechnics reduced noise because there is no secondary explosion and the low altitude reduced the distance of sound travel, the shows still produced noise, bright flashes, smoke at crowd level and litter that had to be carefully recovered.
