Deer Mountain Winter Fireworks 2011
By Ken Arriola


February 24, 2011

To the wonderful citizens of Ketchikan, Saxman, and Metlakatla. As I'm certain that many are wondering what's going on with the 2011 Deer Mountain Winter Fireworks, here's an update. No, it has not already happened, and no, it hasn't been cancelled indefinitely.

Our preference is Saturday at 6:00PM (Feb. 26th), but we haven't ruled out Sunday. We will continue to use the media outlets to alert you as to what night the fireworks will take place. If you're on Facebook, the Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce will have the most current info. The local radio stations will be announcing also. We'd like to say this weekend, but.....

This photo was taken by Rhonda Bolling, two years ago, it accurately portrays the more than half hour display.

Everything is ready to go, the fireworks crew just need a window of good weekend weather to make this happen, and believe me, the eight of us are anxiously anticipating favorable conditions.

This year's display will be our biggest yet, it's gonna be a real kick, so you don't want to missed this one. And you won't have to stay up late to see it; how great is that?

To the following entities who have made this year's event possible, we say "Thank you" for continuing to invest in this place we call home.

Boyer Towing Inc.,
The Plaza,
Alaska Commercial Divers,
Ketchikan Yacht Club,
Tongass Trading,
METCO Hardware (Metlakatla)
