Coney to Host First Fireworks Competition in the Nation

Join us for the first-ever fireworks competition in the nation! See teams from the US, Canada and Mexico compete for best display, plus a stunning finale by Rozzi! It's 4 fireworks shows in one night!

Keep checking back as more event details become available.

It's never been done before, and it may leave you breathless...but on Saturday, September 22, the USA's first-ever fireworks' competition will rock the night sky over Lake Como in the inaugural "Fire Up The Night" international fireworks' challenge, presented by Dr. Pepper.

The event will pit the USA vs. Canada and Mexico in a best-of-the-best fireworks' extravaganza for international bragging rights.

The winner will be determined by a 5-judge panel and audience vote. Each show will be judged on such things as presentation, structure and scale, colors, originality and music synchronization.

Competitors in the world-class event will be:
Fireworks

Alonzo Fireworks (Albany, New York, USA)
Sirius Pyrotechnics (Montreal, Canada)
Lux Pirotecnia (Mexico City, Mexico)

And, following the international competition, Rozzi's Famous Fireworks will fire up the night in a thundering finale not to be missed.
