First-Ever International Fireworks Championship Coming to TC
By Beth Milligan | June 2, 2023
The first-ever International Fireworks Championship will be held September 9 at Turtle Creek Stadium in Traverse City.
Event organizer Traverse City Tourism calls the championship "the first of its kind in the U.S." The event will include "four world-class shows with teams from the U.S., Mexico, Spain, and Germany who have qualified by wining similar competitive events," according to Traverse City Tourism. Competitors will create unique fireworks displays with musical accompaniment, which will be formally judged.
Details of the fireworks championship are still in the planning stages, but it will be a "family-friendly event with entertainment leading up to the competition at nightfall," according to Traverse City Tourism. "The invited competitors must qualify by participating and winning other competitions. Each show will be synchronized to music, and competitors will follow specific guidelines that will challenge their creativity and artistic abilities. The public will have the final say on the winner of the competition."
The International Fireworks Championship will be a ticketed event, with more details and ticket on-sale information coming soon, according to Traverse City Tourism.Comment
