9PM – TROOPER AT GOLDEN SPIKE DAYS
At 9pm, the City of Port Moody presents Canadian rock legend Trooper as the headline performer for Canada 150 celebrations at Golden Spike Days. Trooper has been going strong since 1975, with a string of hits in Canada, including “We’re Here for a Good Time,” “Two for the Show,” and “Raise a Little Hell.” Don’t miss this exciting show at the PCT Performance Stage.
10:30PM – FIREWORKS OVER BURRARD INLET
After Trooper, around 10:30pm, the City presents a spectacular fireworks display over Burrard Inlet. We’re bringing the award winning Archangel Fireworks team back to Port Moody to wrap-up our special celebration. It’s going to be an amazing Canada 150 birthday party.
