  • Bringing an Entertainment Experience to GlobalFest  
    Calgary, AB – August 19th, 2017)  Today, the third night of the Trico Homes International Fireworks will take place with a performance from the Ontario team. Sean Morris of Firemaster Productions’ main philosophy is that a fireworks display should be more than just a show; it should be an entertainment experience! This principle is what guided the choreographing of “Yours to Discover”, a show that will captivate its audience with vibrant visuals, modern music, and an unforgettable finale.
    On August 17th, Big Bang Fireworks presented a pyromusical firework display with musical representation from across our great country.  By focussing on music from the Prairies and using fireworks from Portugal and Mexico that are exclusively available to Big Bang, they created an intoxicating show that stirred emotions and got people singing along as we celebrated our nation’s 150th birthday.
