Fireworks show planned for North Dam on Saturday


This Saturday night, consider heading to the North Dam area to see a free fireworks show put on by the Northwest Pyrotechnics Association.

Local man Alan Cain, a member of the NPA, brought the event together by getting the necessary permits from the powers that be: the city of Grand Coulee, the fire department, the Coulee Area Park and Recreation District, and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation.

“It should be absolutely awesome,” Cain said. “We’re hoping that we will surprise people, and that they’ll have a good time.”

The group will likely start shooting some daytime fireworks as early as 7 p.m., and as it gets darker out, light more colorful fireworks. The group plans to wrap things up around 10 p.m.

Dangerously high winds or other disruptive “acts of God” would cancel the event.

Safety workers in orange jackets and helmets will make sure people don’t get too close to the launch sites, and a safety boat will make sure that those watching from their boats don’t get too close either.

Coulee Playland is offering free boat launching for the event for those who want to see the spectacle from the waters of Banks Lake.

All areas in North Dam Park (below North Dam) and Banks Lake Park (above North Dam) will be great places to see the show, as will the Coulee Playland area.
