Planning is once again under way for one of Mount Isa’s largest annual pyrotechnics displays, the GE Mining Fireworks Spectacular; a part of the 2014 Clancy Corporation Lake Moondarra Fishing Classic.
To be hosted at 8pm on the evening of Saturday October 25 following the presentation ceremony organisers Mount Isa Fish Stocking Group have once again called on the talents of ex-local and now Cairns based pyro-technician Ian ‘Thommo’ Thomasson of 5 Star Fireworks.
Set to make the trip down for his fifth consecutive year Thommo has continually brought new special effects to the Isa and the Fishing Classic; 2013’s display featuring pink love hearts to tie in with the events breast cancer support fundraising and 2012 featuring fireworks from the water and a giant fireworks embossed sign paying homage to GE Mining (formerly Industrea); long-time naming rights sponsors of the Spectacular.
One of the key elements of the 2014 Clancy Corporation Lake Moondarra Fishing Classics entertainment program, the GE Mining Fireworks Spectacular attracts enormous crowds to the Classic and with the revised 2014 format making Saturday evening the close of the event organisers are expecting a celebratory atmosphere complemented by live music by North West country rock hero Ron Sellars following the display. When asked if he could slip any hints about this year’s special effects or if there was to be a theme naming sponsor representative Jason Laffin of GE Mining was tight lipped but did have this to say.
“Thommo and the Fish Stocking Group have never failed to satisfy the crowds who turn out to see the fireworks and support the Classic”.
“This year we can guarantee the GE Mining Fireworks Spectacular will certainly put a ‘SMILE’ on everyone’s faces and we encourage the community to make the trip out the Lake over both the Friday and Saturday to support both the efforts of the Fish Stocking Group and a great community initiative”.
