Virtual Fireworks Show

The show officially begins at 10:00pm and is free to anyone located in New Westminster to view – you just need to download the Snapd Hub App! Brought to you in partnership with the businesses in New Westminster, sponsored by the Uptown and Downtown BIAs.

Troubleshooting:
Your device must have location services turned on.  Please note that the event components that are supported by the Snapd Hub App will only be accessible to people that are physically located within the City of New Westminster.  A geofence or virtual perimeter will be used to setup this bourndary.
