GlobalFest ended with a bang as thousands of people came out to enjoy the spectacular grand finale fireworks show helmed by GlobalFest 2011′s own Fireworks Festival Director, Alain Carbonneau. It was held as a special thanks to participating nations and the family and friends of GlobalFest.

 

On the OneWorld stage, Diane Wensel, Director of Marketing for The Calgary Sun and the Team Leader of the GlobalFest judges announced that the Philippines made a clean sweep winning all three of the People’s Choice Award categories. The Philippines won the award for Favourite Pyromusical Performance, designed by Robert Bahisan of Platinum Fireworks, Inc., Favourite Cultural Pavilion, and Favourite Ethnic Food Booth (Ihaw Ihaw). Votes were cast over the span of a week by festival-goers that logged onto The Calgary Sun website. The winner of the Trico Homes International Fireworks Festival was Italy.
