Calontir Arms

Lilies Fireworks


Lilies War holds a fireworks show every year. This popular celebration is held on the final Friday of war just after dark (usually around 9 PM).


Q: Is there an additional cost to attend the fireworks display?
A: No, if you have paid your site fee and signed in at Gate, you may attend the fireworks display on site.

Q: Where should I (we) sit?
A: Most attendees prefer to watch the fireworks by sitting on the grassy area of The Point (see map). However, some lucky folks (sitting royalty and auction winners) will get to enjoy the fireworks from the Fyrdraca (Calontir’s viking longboat).

Q: What should I bring with me?
A: Your smiles of appreciation for all the volunteers that work hard all year to organize this event. Your singing voice (this IS Calontir). A period chair or blanket since no seating is provided. Your friends and family. Patience while waiting for the show to start. (Trust us, you’ll know when it begins.)

Q: How many people attend the fireworks display?
A: There have been years where there are over 1000 people in attendance for the fireworks show. This includes those on the Fyrdraca, on site, and the large amount of modern local boats who fill the Calontir harbor surrounding the Lilies War grounds on the lake. Our fireworks are a well-known tradition.

Q: How long is the display?
A: Generally, the fireworks are going off between 30-45 minutes. On site, there are festivities before and after the display.

Q: Can I volunteer to help?
A: There are always ways to help throughout the war. Please check the Lilies Staff Page for contact email addresses.

Q: Can I donate to the Lilies Fireworks Fund?
A: Absolutely! Please contact the Lilies Exchequer to donate!

Q: What about the Lilies War Fireworks fundraising efforts?
A: The Lilies War fireworks show costs about $5,000.00 per year. $2000 of that comes from a mystery donation (see Duncan of Skeene for that information) and the remaining $3000 being raised every year.
