CINCINNATI, Ohio, Sept. 13, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — It’s the world’s largest waterless pool party, and it happens Saturday, September 24, 2016 at historic Cincinnati Coney Island Amusement Park on the banks of the Ohio River. The empty-pool party is part of a super-charged end-of-summer fan favorite at Coney Island – Fire Up the Night V, the USA’s ONLY international fireworks competition, presented by Rozzi Famous Fireworks.
The unique Yuengling “Party IN the Pool” invites visitors to share the fun of the international fireworks’ competition from inside Coney’s legendary Sunlite Pool, the largest swimming pool in North America at 401-feet long by 200-feet wide, covering two acres and holding three million gallons of water!
The “world’s largest waterless pool party” begins at 4 p.m. The empty-pool area will give guests – who typically bring folding chairs and blankets to the event – a fantastic vantage point to view the international fireworks competition, blasting off at 8:30 p.m. over Coney Island’s beautiful Lake Como.
This year’s best-of-the-best firework teams are coming from Greece, the Philippines and South Africa. The teams will be representing their countries while going head-to-head against one another for international bragging rights.
A panel of judges and audience will vote on which team performs the best, evaluating such things as presentation, structure and scale, colors, originality and music synchronization.
Plus, following the international competition, event producer Rozzi Famous Fireworks of Cincinnati will fire up the night in a thundering finale that will shake the banks of the Ohio River. The event is presented by Dr. Pepper.
The Greek fireworks’ contingent is represented by Nanos Fireworks Greece, a company with a four-generation heritage of fireworks’ expertise. Representing the Philippines is Dragon Fireworks Inc., the first-ever licensed pyrotechnic manufacturer in the Philippines, and from Johannesburg, South Africa is Fireworks for Africa, started in 1996 and already the winner of numerous fireworks’ display awards.
In addition to the firework and the in-pool party, numerous fun activities highlight the event, including Coney Island’s two dozen classic amusement rides, live entertainment and a beer-tasting event in Moonlite Pavilion featuring an array of craft and international beers.
Admission to Fire Up The Night V is $25 per carload (includes event admission, parking, Coney Island’s classic rides and live entertainment). Coney’s gates open at 4 p.m.
