The Prairies Get Ready to Celebrate Canada150 with a Big Bang!

Media Release

Dan Roy and Big Bang Fireworks Set to Perform August 17 

(Calgary, AB – August 16th, 2017) Tomorrow, the second night of the Trico Homes International Fireworks will take place with a performance from the Prairies region. Dan Roy and Big Bang Fireworks will present 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, their goal is to create an intoxicating show that will stir emotions and get people singing along as we celebrate our nation’s 150th birthday.
Last night, the Trico Homes International Fireworks Festival debuted with a fantastic performance from The West’s team, Mystical Fireworks. “Spirit of the West” was a captivating show that enthralled spectators from start to finish.  The program featured some exceptional Canadian hits, such as Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams and Feelin Good by Michael Buble.  Pyro-technician Rod Cameron choreographed a masterful presentation that was colourful and varied in tone and tempo.  If you missed the show, check out this video for a re-cap of what to expect at the Festival:
