Globalfest Fireworks from the First Night

I finally had a chance to go through my firework photo from evening of Thursday, August 16.  This was the first evening of Globalfest Fireworks and the first country up was the Philippines which were 2011's people choice.  

"GlobalFest burst onto the scene in 2003 with 10 cultural pavilions and three countries presenting pyromusicals in Calgary's very own international fireworks festival. On the fourth and final night of the festival, GlobalFest celebrated a remarkable accomplishment. The festival reached attendance of close to 100,000 in the very first year, making GlobalFest one of Calgary's top draws for local citizens and tourists alike." GlobalFest Website

I look forward to shooting the Finale this evening and promise to post photos later on this week.  You can find more fireworks photos at the following link:  Fireworks ~ 2012
