CTRA 2015 Fireworks - Saturday, September 12
Bring the family to see the fireworks on the river! Unlike last year when we had a full moon, this year will have no visible moon at sunset (7:57PM). The fireworks will start around 8:30 and it should be a great show. The best view is from a boat on the river.   Fireworks Map
