Hi everyone, just wanted to send out a message to let everyone know/remind everyone we will be having a meetup for the International Fireworks Competition on Friday! So sign up if you can make it, it should be a great chance to see and shoot some awesome night shots of the fireworks, to play around with your cameras, get to meet each other and ask each other questions.
Remember even if you're new to photography DON'T BE SHY, I promise you'll still have fun!
Actual meet spot to still be decided!
Come and experience Calgary skies as you have never seen them before by attending the Trico Homes International Fireworks Competition. Each night of the competition, breathtaking firework displays choreographed to music will be launched from Calgary?s stunning Elliston Park on International Avenue (17th Avenue SE), at the corner of 60th Street SE in Greater Forest Lawn. The synchronization of fireworks and music, the reflection of fireworks on Elliston Lake, and the aquatic fireworks that bounce off the water are all components that cannot be experienced unless you join us in the park.
Fireworks could be postponed due to any conditions that organizers feel may jeopardize public safety. The alternate weather day is the day following the regularly scheduled performance.
Please be aware that with the exception of service dogs, there are no dogs allowed in Elliston Park during GlobalFest due to the loud noises made by the fireworks. Please leave your four-legged friends at home.
Shuttle Service & Parking
We encourage you to park at Marlborough Mall and take one of our Southland shuttles to Elliston Park. Shuttles run from 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and then leave Elliston Park from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. The cost of a round trip is only $6. There are also designated parking lots along International Avenue operated by charitable organizations.
