According to Celebration of Light’s Sunday Facebook post, China won the 2011 Celebration of Light.
And the winner of the 2011 Celebration of Light is…..CHINA!
It was a VERY close decision with our panel of 8 judges coming to the decision that China put on the best all around show at this years Fireworks.
Congratulations to the Chinese team, and thank you to both Canada and Spain for making this competition one of the strongest in years!
Who’ll be coming back next year?
The results were highly controversial. Viewers commented:
THIS IS ABSURD. China’s music you couldn’t hear .. and further .. it wasn’t NEARLY as robust as EITHER Spain’s display or Canada’s .. SHAME ON YOUR DECISION!!!!
How did you manage to mis-spell CANADA as CHINA? Worst. Typo. Ever!
Let’s hope people won’t riot because Canada didn’t win.
Booo!!! Spain was the only one to have unusual fireworks that matched the music (those ‘waves’, kitchy smiley faces, and the swirls that evoked Arabic script during the Moorish music, etc. . Only 3 of 33 FB comments supported China.
Spain was amazing! Choreography was unbelievable. One of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Canada was fantastic as well, but a bit manic. Congratulations China. Already looking forward to next year.
