The Casino du Lac Leamy Sound of Light is one of Canada's largest fireworks events and one of the world's top-notch fireworks competitions. On August 11, 2018, our pyrotechnicians competed against three other international teams for the coveted Zeus Award.

Since 1996, Sound of Light is held annually in Canada's capital Ottawa and is impatiently longed for every year, a saved date in the calendar of Canadian fireworks fans. Participation in the competition is very exclusive and takes place exclusively as a result of an invitation from the organizer. Anyone who receives an invitation to Sound of Light may feel honored, especially since the competition claims to present "some of the best teams in the world".

With about 600 cakes and single shots as well as 1,800 bombs with a height of up to 250 meters, we presented a breathtaking show and conquered the hearts of the audience, after whose vote we were awarded the Best Show Award. Mille merci to the audience!
