It’s day nine of the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, and if you haven’t already noticed the explosions of sound and light that reverberated through the city last week-end, you’ve still got 2 chances to catch Light Up The City.
The Stampede, along with its long-time partner TransAlta, has set up the largest and most sophisticated fireworks presentation in Canadian history to commemorate the Centennial year of the Calgary Stampede!
With 4 nights already under its belt, the massive, synchronized fireworks extravaganza will be set off from five locations across the city tonight and Sunday night – at Stampede Park, Elliston Park, North Glenmore Park, McCall Lake, and Winsport’s Canada Olympic Park.
The show starts between 11 pm and 11:30, and will last approximately 12 minutes. The music, with which the fireworks show has been synchronized, is being played on the Corus radio stations Country 105 (105.1 FM), Q107 (107.3 FM) and AM770 CHQR (770 AM). So grab your portable radio or tune in from your car radio, and watch the fireworks as they’re meant to be seen – in technicolour, with music!
And, for those of you looking to see multiple locations from one vantage point: Rumour has it that from the top of Nose Hill, you can see all 5 shows. I haven’t seen the show from there myself, but that’s what I hear.
