London's Canada Day firework display doubles in size
Londoners can expect bigger and brighter colours across evening skies
London's Canada Day fireworks is going to be the biggest ever.
It will still be 20 minutes long, but expect a more intense experience.
"When the fireworks break, they will last twice as long in the air and the colours are twice as vibrant,"said Jason Anber, a manager at K&H fireworks. The company is organizing the Saturday night show at the Forks of the Thames.
With more than 500 shows under his belt, Anber said Londoners can expect to see bigger shells launched from four different locations.
Anber said people may even get an extra minute or two of show time.
The fireworks are imported from Spain and will soar up to 500 meters into the air and break 200 meters across the skies.
Although the forecast is looking clear, weather concerns are still on the radar for the team of ten staff.
A larger concern, however, is crowd control.
"[The show] has 20 extra security guards just to keep crowds out of our [launch] areas and to keep them safe and to keep us safe," he said.
Anber's team holds about 50 shows on Canada Day across Ontario.
"It's not a job for me because I enjoy doing it," said Anber, who's been a pyrotechnician for 20 years. "It's a love of the fireworks."
The Forks of the Thames fireworks display is expected to begin at dusk.
