Held in one of Spain’s largest cities, the Feria De Malaga (or fair of Malaga) has been running for the last 526 years and 2013 will once again see a fantastic program of entertainment which is certain to capture the imagination of the masses. The celebrations take place in the beautiful city of Malaga and involve the beach, monuments and of course churches.
The event begins the second Friday in August during the hottest part of the year when temperatures on the Mediterranean reach a balmy 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Starting on a Friday, the celebrations last for 10-days and attract over a million visitors.
The show kicks off with a huge pyro musical fireworks display on the beach and you can enjoy the party atmosphere with food available from any of the concession stands set up on the shoreline.
The entertainment is a rich and varied as the Spanish people with some dressed in traditional flamenco outfits, musical theatre groups, bars, DJ’s and much more.
The fireworks display is second to none and features some spectacular shells and having been lucky enough to visit the event in 2003 with my family (whilst on holiday in Fuengirola) I have to say, with the event being on the beach front, the cool breeze off the Med (if you are lucky enough to get one) is a welcome addition. The party goes on into the wee small hours for those not taking part in the parade on the Saturday!!
There is some pretty beautiful shells with hearts, faces and spaceships along with more than a couple of staggeringly large glittering sphere’s which just hang in the air as if begging to stay there which makes it difficult to choose a favourite. The show starts at 23:50 with the ‘proclamation of the fair’ and then the fireworks start at midnight to music.
Every day from late morning, well into the evening the city is filled with music and traditional dancing with horses and riders adorned in traditional Andalucian costume it is a spectacular sight and one that any discerning firework enthusiast should add to their bucket list.
On Sunday the 30th May 2010 Epic Fireworks did a little display for some friends of ours who were getting married. The wedding was a big success and a great party. Needless to say the highlight was the fireworks and the show was fantastic. We have captured the display from 2 angles. One camera was focused on rockets alone and the other was a crowds eye view showing what it looked like from where the audience was standing.The audience video was shot by Kaushal Patel, the rocket video by Epics own Paul. The rockets were all hand lit by Paul and Big Mex, the barrages hand lit by handsome pyrotechnician extraordinaire Graeme Connelly.
As you can hear from the crowd there was a lot of excitement on the night and a great time was had by all. Check both videos for a completely different view of the fireworks.
Every firework used is available from Epic Fireworks right now to order on phone or on the internet, delivery is usually free and we are always happy to advise on how to set up and fire your own display. Make it a night to remember, with Epic Fireworks.
Everyone keeps asking what the big rockets at the end are, Sky Thriller made exclusively for Epic Fireworks. The UKs home of fireworks.
Pictures of the display to come soon.
This young lad is probably closer than 25Metres from the fireworks here. I wonder if he is wearing safety goggles? He seems to be adjusting something on his face. Parents! keep an eye on your kids at fireworks displays!
This is a great shot of the crowd enjoying the fireworks, it looks like they are standing very close to the action but in all likelihood they are quite a distance from it, the silhouetted figures are a nice effect and make for a really nice photo.
Dancing near the fireworks. This is strongly not recommended.
GI Joe (Action Man for the UK) is standing way too close to the fireworks. However he is a brave soldier, and being made of plastic means that no-one can really get hurt.
OK, this guy is definately made of plastic and as such is also guaranteed to walk away without a scratch. This lego chap should still not be holding a firework as we all know that it is very dangerous. Fireworks Safety is important people!
Even Mickey is getting in on the action “look at me kids! I’m playing with fireworks!” Probably not the best message to send out there Mickey. I hope there was some kind of disclaimer after the show warning people not to attempt this themselves….Speaking of which…Do not attempt to do any of this yourselves people. All the pictures featured here showed trained professionals/plastic toys/muppets who don’t know any better. You do know better so never fool with fireworks.
