β€œThis promises a fireworks event like no other,” said Mickey Graham, Director of Events at Traverse City Tourism. β€œThere are bright colors, bold designs and fun concepts. I recently watched a competition in Spain and the show was the pride of the entire community.”

The Championship is believed to be one of the first of its kind in the US, building on similar fireworks competitions that are wildly popular in places like Europe, the UK, Canada, and Mexico.

Only a handful of Fireworks Competitions are held in the US, with the closest being staged in Missouri.

Reality Show for Fireworks

The fireworks contest is like “Top Chef” but replace the food with fireworks.

Competitors create unique, elaborate fireworks displays that are synchronized to music and must meet a list of challenging requirements.

Traverse City’s competitors qualified for this event by participating and winning other competitions. Four world-class shows comprise this evening’s International Fireworks Championship, with teams from the US, Mexico, Spain and Germany vying for top prize.

Each entry will be formally judged but the public has the final say on the winner of the competition.

Nothing Like This

β€œThe International Fireworks Championship will be unlike anything this area has seen,” said Traverse City Tourism President, Trevor Tkach.

β€œThe competition is tough. It’s taking typical Fourth of July fireworks and adds elements of artistry to a competitive challenge – this will bring new meaning to live entertainment in northern Michigan. It gives people another great reason to come to Traverse City.”
