Friday 24th August – Annual Cannes Pyrotechnic Art Festival and Dinner on the Croisette Beach

Dear Members and Guests,

Very welcome to the popular “Festival Pyrotechnique de Cannes” and dinner on the Croisette, Friday 24th of August, featuring the Dragon Fireworks by the Philippines.

As early as 1967 Cannes went much further than the traditional firework display.  It organized a huge fireworks contest set to music.  Firework specialists had to marry melodies with colors.  The results were very striking and impressed the audience.  In 1998 a further step forward was taken with the “Festival Pyrotechnique de Cannes”. The show, performed on a 400-metre sea front, is watched by 200,000 spectators every night.

Cannes Pyrotechnic Art Festival offers a multi-colored, musical battle where 6 guest countries compete in one of the most famous international competitions of its kind, to try and win a Silver Vestal and return to compete in the prestigious Gold Vestal every four years.
