Fireworks spectacular to be biggest display in Ladysmith Days history

LDCU celebrates 75th anniversary with historic fireworks display

In celebration of their 75 years serving the community, the Ladysmith and District Credit Union, (LDCU) is putting on the biggest firework spectacular in Ladysmith Days history.

LDCU CEO, John de Leeuw said that last year’s spectacular was fantastic, but that this year will be bigger and better.

“As part of giving back to the community for our 75th anniversary we are ensuring that the fireworks show at Ladysmith Days is the best ever, and we’re doing that by getting the fireworks show synchronized to music,” de Leeuw said.

The theme for the show is “a night at the cinema”, and will feature iconic music from revered film composer, John Williams. Music will be played on speakers at Transfer Beach. For those wanting to watch the fireworks from other areas of town, the music will be broadcast live on 98.7 FM. The signal should broadcast to all areas of Ladysmith.

“This is the first time we’ve done a fireworks show synchronized to music, so we’re really excited to see how it turns out,” De Leeuw said.

LDCU’s fireworks spectacular will light up the sky at 10:00 pm on Sunday, August 4. It will be the final event of Ladysmith Days 2019.
