    Hello, I was wondering if there was a contact number for table rentals?
    Thank you, Haley

    • Comox Valley Guide says:

      Hi Haley, I would suggest contacting the City of Courtenay – they should be able to point you in the right direction.

  2. bruce dean says:

    I don’t see any notice regarding fireworks for the Canada Day celebrations….do you have them, and if so where can they be watched from?

    • Comox Valley Guide says:

      Unfortunately there are never any fireworks with Canada Day Celebrations here in the Comox Valley. I believe Campbell River has a fireworks display, but am not 100% certain.

  3. Ann says:

    What roads will be closed to vehicle traffic at what times? And why is this information not published in the local papers?

    Thanks.

  4. Ally Reeder says:

    Hey there !
    So there are no Fireworks in Courtenay this evening ?

  5. Kaylee Crisfield says:

    Where will the fireworks be at tonight? And at what time?

  6. Sydney says:

    I’m training and a riding cow who’s well behaved could I enter her in the parade? Thanks
