Although Team Croatia, who was voted as the People’s Choice Winner through the official Honda Celebration of Light app, and Team India delivered spectacular performances, Team Canada had the edge in the eyes of the judges.
Team Canada really used the barge and supplied equipment to their full potential, they pushed limits by mounting their products in new and exciting ways to fill the scenes from varied angles and even spelled out “HELLO” in sparks.”, says Kelly Guille, President of Archangel Fireworks Inc. “They had a fun energy, and their tracks were uplifting. The competition was tough this year, it’s hard to believe that it was Team India’s first competition performance anywhere in the world, and team Croatia pulled big nostalgia and emotion from the crowd using popular movie soundtracks to back their massive spectacle.”
