Globalfest Fireworks are back for another year at Elliston Park in Calgary. It’s a great end of summer celebration that highlights the multicultural society Canada is while ending each night with a bang of spectacular fireworks.
Wandering Globalfest at Elliston Park and checking out the exhibits and Night Market is a fun way to spend an evening, and you can get a shuttle bus from Marlborough Mall to handle your parking problems, but if you just want to watch the GlobalFest fireworks without buying a ticket or getting in to a traffic tie up, you just need to head about a kilometre down the road to find a great spot.
We check them out from a side road at 84th St SE and 17th Ave SE – and we’re not the only ones. About a dozen families pulled over to have a great view. Sure, you don’t hear the music, but you avoid the crowds and it’s a quick trip back to Stoney Trail to get home without muscling through traffic tie ups.
