The fireworks competition is now underway at Stars and Thunder.

Organizers say there is more that goes into a competition than meets the eye.

John Curley says this year there are three secret judges who will look at the different countries’ colours, audience reaction and how they highlight themselves.

Team Finland, Brazil and China are looking to leave Timmins with winning bragging rights.

Curley says the scores will be added together and revealed after the last competition show Thursday night.
