China Starts GlobalFest With a Bang!

(Calgary, AB, August 22, 2015) Due to extreme weather, China’s performance was postponed until tonight. That did not stop China’s Lidu Fireworks from illuminating the sky over Elliston Park with spectacular fireworks. The Chinese team took us through an emotional journey with “Butterfly Lovers”, a presentation designed by Chen Jian. The music, which included “Dinner is Served” by Hans Zimmer accompanied a story that dazzled festival patrons.


Lidu Fireworks hopes to take home GlobalFest’s “Best Of” Award for 2015. Adjudicators will announce the winner of the Trico Homes International Fireworks Festival on the RE/MAX Main Stage on Saturday, August 29 – Finale Night.


Prior to the fireworks, GlobalFest patrons were able to take in the sights, sounds, smells, and tastes that the OneWorld Festival has to offer with Cultural Pavilions, Ethnic Food Booths, Performance Stages, a brand new Molson Lounge, the Tipi Village presented by Nexen Energy, an International Café & Bar, a Night Market, and the Children’s Village presented by Shakers Fun Centre.


A big thank you to all our patient guests who came out tonight and helped in making our first show of 2015 the success it was. GlobalFest will continue the festivities on Sunday, August 23 where Filipino team Platinum Fireworks will look to impress.
