Pattaya in Thailand plays host to the International Fireworks Festival once again this year.
Unfortunately, as opposed to the usual ten teams competing, this year there will only be four.
The Competition runs from 30th November – 1st December and features teams representing Canada, China, USA and Singapore. Each of the teams will compete for 45 minutes showing the best of their skills to the massive crowds that this event regularly draws.
This year, four Thai celebrities will represent one of the competing teams as their ‘Team Captain’.
The main event titled ‘Brighten Your Life’ will feature the fireworks show which takes place on the first day of Competition along the beach road which of course will have to be closed to traffic from around 3:30pm onwards.

The annual Malta International Fireworks Festival is organised by the Parliamentary Secretariat for Tourism and the Malta Tourism Authority. The Grand Harbour will provide the setting for the festival, which takes place on 29th and 30th April 2011.
The best vantage points to enjoy the spectacle will be from Barriera Wharf on the Valletta seafront or from the bastions of the harbour.
There will be lots of firework displays synchronised to music over the two nights, with a variety of Maltese fireworks factories competing for the very best display.
Fireworks in Malta have a long long tradition which goes back to the time of the Order of the Knights of St John. The feu de joie, the musketterija, the solfarelli d’aria, St Catherine’s wheels (irdieden) and other forms of fireworks, originated from explosives that were lit from mortars on special occasions, such as the election of a Grand Master or the birth of a prince.
The Malta Fireworks festival also serves to commemorate Malta’s accession into the European Union that took place on 1st May 2004.
