WHAT: DA NANG INTERNATIONAL FIREWORK FESTIVAL 2018
WHY: INTERNATIONAL COMPETITION
WHERE: DA NANG, VIETNAM
WHEN: SUMMER 2018
Some of the best exponents of pyrotechnic art brought together to battle it out with bright and beautiful firework effects and colour again this year.
It has become one of the most visited areas in the World and each year the increase in arrivals in the Country has gone up 25% every year for the last 5 years and it shows no sign of slowing down thanks to its dramatic landscape, the friendliness and hospitality of its people, some of the best, cleanest and most beautiful beaches and of course the food is beautifully fresh.
The annual Da Nang International Firework Festival includes, of course, an international competition as well as other events including a food festival, dance competition and a street carnival and parade.
The teams this year hailed from Portugal, Hong Kong, USA, France, Poland, Sweden, Italy and of course local representatives from Vietnam.
The winner of the Firework Competition was the team from Martello SR Italy who once again lifted the trophy for the second year running with their theme ‘Legend of Bridges’.
In my opinion, the first couple of minutes of the Italian display was a little odd as it was all to come side and there was little choreography going on as the timing was well and truly shot and the symmetry off. However, once they gained some momentum, it was simply gorgeous and some of the big shells were outstanding in both effect and sheer magnitude. A poor start quickly became a stunning display – well done Martello SR.
