Teams from around the world will compete for best fireworks display at Coney Island Saturday. 

Attendees will view four fireworks displays in one night by three teams from Australia, Brazil and England followed by a finale by Rozzi's Famous Fireworks.

Competitor and judge introductions will begin at 8 p.m. with FOX19 NOW's Frank Marzullo and Megan O'Rourke. 

The winner will be determined by a 5-judge panel and audience text vote. Panel will judge based on presentation, structure and scale, colors, originality and music synchronization. Audience text voting will open after final competitive display. Information on how to apply through text will be provided on flyers at the gate and will be posted throughout the park. 

The gates open at 4 p.m. and the first display will begin at 8:30 p.m. with 20-30 minutes between each display. Following the international competition and awards ceremony, Rozzi's will 'fire up the night' in a thundering finale.
