We had two pieces of great news this weekend – Bryan found out that he has been accepted into the new program he wanted at college after being on a waiting list for the past couple of months, and Daniel was offered a position at Tim Horton’s after months and months of job searching. So, we certainly had reason to celebrate, and what better way to do that than by attending an amazing fireworks display in the little town of Mount Forest, Ontario.
Over the past decade, Mount Forest has gained the distinct reputation of being one of the best places to go in Ontario to see a jaw-dropping fireworks display done to music that attracts more than 25,000 people. According to http://www.vacay.ca, “a big reason for that reputation is fireworks display supervisor David Whysall and his company, David Whysall Fireworks Inc. A British immigrant and entrepreneur, Whysall found a life for himself and a home for his company in Ontario.
Whysall has been playing a part in the fireworks industry for more than 45 years and has performed in international competitions. In 2008 his team won the DaNang International Fireworks Competition for Canada by beating out Hong Kong, Vietnam, and Malaysia. In that same year, he took first place in the “Show Designer” category for team China at the GlobalFest International Fireworks Competition in Calgary.”
This year’s fireworks were absolutely amazing, and I took so many pictures that I found it really hard to pick just a few to show you. So, instead I am going to share a lot of them :). Enjoy!
