(Calgary, AB – August 20, 2017) – The festivities continue today with our 9th annual Citizenship Ceremony at the Sunbelt Rentals OneWorld Festival.  This year, we will be welcoming 100 new citizens to this beautiful country! The ceremony will take place today at 7:00 pm on the OneWorld Stage. Wayne Chui of Trico Homes will be officiating this exciting ceremony along with CIC.  We hope to see you there for this moving celebration of multiculturalism and Canadian identity.


Later in the evening, the third night of the Trico Homes International Fireworks will light up the sky with a performance from the Philippines team. Robert Basihan and Leegendary Fireworks presents “Apocalypse (War in Heaven)” – a thematic journey that focuses on apocalypse and revelation which is a war in heaven, a battle between the forces of good and evil during the ends times. This performance takes us through the similarity of real life and the constant battle we face when obstacles test our strength and faith. There will also be a prelude commemorating the heroism of the late Benigno “Ninoy” Aquino Sr.
