In 2003 GlobalFest exploded on the festival scene in Calgary with it international fireworks competition. Over the next 10 years GlobalFest has expanded and now includes OneWorld Festival, Human Rights and Youth Forums and the Globalfest Night Market.
However the pyrotechnic displays are still the main draw. The event is held in Elliston Park in southeast Calgary, where the fireworks are launched over the lake that makes for spectacular reflections and are accompanied by a musical score. This year’s pyromusical artists were from China, France, Great Britain, the USA and the Finale from Canada.
Unfortunately we were unable to attend China’s presentation, but did make it to all of the others.
