Jacqui Ferguson (@EuroSkye) sent us this image on Sept. 5, saying "What a fantastic fireworks display in Saskatoon by the team from France! Instead of being launched from the Broadway Bridge like previous years, they came from barge in the river in front of Rotary Park. It added a different element as they were able to release the fireworks low over the river, which created some colorful reflections on the water."
