Lawn chairs, blankets with families and couples young and old flooded Saskatoon’s River Landing Saturday night to take in the annual PotashCorp Fireworks Festival.
Twin brothers Parker and Ford Wingert said their favourite part of the fireworks was the explosions.
“They’re cool and they explode in the air,” Parker said. His brother Ford added he admired “how they like, blow up.”
The two Saskatoon boys spent a few hours at the event most of the time waiting in lines for things like food.
Parker had “Gravy and fries and ribs and timbits” for supper.
The twins are enjoying their last weekend before heading into grade four next week.
Catherine Shore was lucky enough to take in both nights of action. She said Saturday’s performance was more abstracts and artsy and she preferred Friday nights show.
“The ones last night (Friday) were just a bit more bright, and it felt like it lit up my face when I was staring at them and the music was a bit more pop-y,” said Shore.
Shore adds that Saturday’s performance told a nice story.
To mark Canada’s 150th anniversary two Canadian companies put on the shows.
Friday was coordinated by Fireworks Spectaculars, an Alberta based company.
The display Saturday came from award winning Quebec company Royal Pyrotechnie.
