New Year’s Eve display at Hemaruka

Written by User Submitted


Although Hemaruka, once a small town in east central Alberta between Veteran and Youngstown on Sec. Hwy. 884, is considered a ghost town when you google it, that isn’t the case on the evening of Jan. 1 each year as approx. 35 – 40 people turn out for the annual fireworks, hot dogs, Christmas baking and socializing around the propane fire pit outside and the camp kitchen stove inside. Cory Dolinsky purchases the fireworks and sets them off with this year’s display lasting over 11 minutes. ECA Review/K. Cooper
