FIREWORKS 2017 GOES INTERNATIONAL!!!

Our 2017 two-day fireworks competition is going international for the first time this year, with Canada taking on China in the competition.

 

The Canadian team, CanFire Pyrotechnics from Winnipeg, will shoot off fireworks Saturday, August 5 and the Chinese company, FireShow, will go on Sunday, August 6 with a show that includes types of fireworks never before seen in Canada.

 

Before the Chinese fireworks show on Sunday, there will be another first for Living Skies Come Alive. The Chinese Cultural Society of Saskatchewan will put on a traditional Chinese lion dance at 7:00 PM down by the park store.  The Lion Dance is a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture and other Asian countries in which performers mimic a lion’s movements in a lion costume.

The lion dance is performed during the Chinese New Year and at special celebrations.  In a lion dance, two performers are inside each lion costume. The performers replicate moves that are part of Chinese martial arts.

The participants in the Lion Dance at Moosomin Lake will be students of the Chung Wah Kung Fu School in Regina.

 

Tim Mrazek is an instructor with Chung Wah Kung Fu. Mrazek said the performers have performed the Lion Dance around the province, and are looking forward to performing at the fireworks competition at Moosomin Lake. The lion dancers with Chung Wah are accomplished Kung Fu students who perform at a variety of events, such as the annual Chinese New Year celebrations in Regina, and the China Night fundraiser, an event at which the Chinese Cultural Society raises funds for the Hospitals of Regina Foundation.
