Fireworks Festival in Cannes

Cannes may be called the world’s capital of chic exhibitions, grandiose film festivals and other inspirational events. However, the shows, prepared by pyrotechnics from all over the world, does not disappear in this list of performances. Pyrotechnics Fireworks Festival (Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique) is considered one of the most exciting and important events of the summer season in France.

Bay of Cannes is an ideal place for such grand festivals. From the middle of July a night sky of Cannes is illuminated with lights of fireworks, which can be conveniently observed from the 300-meters observation deck on the seafront. Extravaganza in the sky is complemented by a charming reflection in the water surface and great music.

This year Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique will last until August 24.

Every night the show gathers about 200,000 admiring spectators. Masters of pyrotechnics from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, UK and many other countries are fighting for their hearts.

Like every year, during the festival the organizers will name the top five teams pyrotechnics who get «Silver Vestale» award and the right to compete for the main trophy of Festival d’Art Pyrotechnique – «Gold Vestale».
