It is the activity which ends the Waroona Agricultural Show each year with a bang.

At 8pm on show day, crowds won’t be looking in the sky for a bird or a plane, but something far more spectacular.

The Alcoa Fireworks is sure to entertain children and those with a youthful spark again at this year’s 92nd show.

Waroona Agricultural Society president Nick McLarty highlighted the display as one of the key aspect of the show day.

“The Alcoa Fireworks is always a spectacular show to go and see,” he said.

The display is supported by the bauxite miner and alumina producer, which is a major employer in the Waroona community and a platinum sponsor of this year’s event.

Wagerup refinery community relations manager Tom Busher said the company had been sponsoring the show for more than 15 years.

“Our sponsorship has focused on helping provide those free entertainment options tailored towards young families,” he said.

It is not just activities the company gets involved in, with employees at the Wagerup refinery and Wagerup bauxite mine assisting with the set up of the show each year.

Through the Alcoa Waroona Sustainability Fund partnership with the Shire of Waroona, the company has also partnered with the Waroona Agricultural Society to develop the main sheds, murals and other infrastructure within the town’s showgrounds.

Mr Busher said the passion displayed by the Waroona community for “their community show” kept Alcoa supporting the event year after year.

“It’s a genuine community-owned-and-driven event which just about everybody in the town gets involved with,” he said.

Asked what Alcoa hopes attendees will get out of this year’s display, Mr Busher responded: “Just a great evening’s family entertainment that all the residents of Waroona can enjoy”.
