The Cascades of Fire International Fireworks Competition in Niagara Falls will resume this weekend after postponements caused by weather and an injury to a worker.
Team Finland will begin its fireworks show at 9 p.m. Friday and Team Brazil will follow at 9 p.m. Saturday. In addition, a 10-minute fireworks display is scheduled for 9 p.m. Sunday from the lower Niagara Gorge, according to sponsors.
The competition was postponed Nov. 10 and 11 because of high winds and a serious head injury suffered by an employee for the fireworks supplier, Whysall Fireworks, who was hit by a fireworks shell Saturday.
The organizer, Winter Festival of Lights, a nonprofit winter illumination festival in Southern Ontario, indicated that shows by teams from Italy, Vietnam and Canada have been cancelled.
