Attracting some of the best pyrotechnicians in the world, the Festival of Pyrotechnic Art in Cannes sees fireworks masters compete under their national flags on about seven nights, turning the skies of the picturesque town into an artistic canvas. Apart from the overall prize awarded by the panel of judges, there is a 'public prize' voted on by spectators. Each fireworks display is a minimum 25-minutes long and all are accompanied by music. The fireworks are launched from three barges in the Bay of Cannes and spectators gather at vantage points all over the town to watch the breathtaking displays. For a full programme check the official website listed below.
Venue: Baie de Cannes
