GlobalFest Fireworks Contest in Calgary

The Western Canadian city of Calgary has lots to offer tourists during the summer months, and a big highlight is the annual GlobalFest Fireworks Competition. Every August four countries are selected to compete in a fireworks contest, alongside cultural pavilions, dancers and food. The competition consists of each county each performing on a separate night with a 20 minute fireworks display synchronized with music over a small pond.

This year I managed to catch Spain’s performance. They are the returning champions from last year and they put on an amazing show. I brought my camera out this year and got some pics of all the amazing colors and lights. Check them out!
