In April of 2009 I was invited to exhibit a selection of my Fireworks Photos in Liuyang, Hunan China at the 9th International Liuyang Fireworks Festival. The 9th China (Liuyang) International Fireworks Festival was opened in Hunanís Liuyang City on the evening of May 22. Secretary of Hunan Provincial CPC Committee Zhang Chunxian, Vice Director of State Administration of Work Safety Sun Huashan, and other top officials in Hunan province feasted their eyes on the fantastic and splendid fireworks display along with over ten thousand guests from home and abroad.

At 8:00 pm, thousands of fireworks in the shape of various objects and images such as falling cascades, fluttering red flags, celestial scattered flowers and other patterns glittered through the sky and brought viewers to a world of fantasy and wonder. These three-dimensional scrolls of fireworks images reflect the highest level of the fireworks industries throughout the world.

According to the organizing committee of the festival, 100 thousand sets of fireworks were prepared to be set off for the event, which is a larger scale of fireworks display over and above previous such events. The new fireworks technologies and products developed by Liuyang fireworks professionals made a debut following their success at the ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

The China (Liuyang) International Fireworks Festival is held once every two years. Many special activities were scheduled during this festival such as the 2nd China Fireworks & Firecrackers Safety Forum, the 3rd China Fireworks & Firecrackers Industrial Fair, the International Investment & Financing Summit for the Global Fireworks Industry, the 3rd International Music Fireworks Display Competition and the 1st exclusive International Fireworks Photography Exhibition. Liuyang has successfully held nine international fireworks festivals since the 1990s. The International Fireworks Festival has become an immensely popular event with a far-reaching influence on the global fireworks industry, significantly pushing forward the progress and advancement of fireworks and firecrackers industries in China and around the world.
