WHAT: NOTTE DI FIABA 2018
WHY: FIREWORK FESTIVAL AND FIESTA
WHERE: RIVA DEL GARDA, (OVERLOOKING LAKE GARDA, ITALY)
WHEN: 23rd to 26th AUGUST 2018
This magical event has become the centre piece of celebrations in and around Lake Garda annually for the last 60-years.
Riva del Garda plays host to tens of thousands of visitors annually, both from within Italy and of course from around Europe and the rest of the world. Notte di Fiaba translates as ‘fairytale night’ and with fun, fantasy and fireworks, it really is the perfect combination.
The event has up to 100 activities to take part in or observe but they are all fairy tale related and this year, the main theme for 2018 is ‘Little Mermaid’ so the entertainment is suitable for the whole family.
There will be:
• Craft corners
• Story telling
• Face painting
• Food – including delicious gourmet burgers, artisan beers, locally smoked meat specialties and hot and crispy calamari
The fireworks will be the responsibility of Martarello Group, Italy which was originally set up almost 100 years ago by the founder, Giovanni Martarello. In 1949, his son took over the business but sadly, following his death, the business became the responsibility of his wife Maria. With 5 children to care for, she went on to show incredible strength and fortitude as she continued to grow the business into one which is acknowledged around the world for the incredible displays the team have created.
The firework display will take place at 10pm and is completely free of charge so pick your spot, sit back and watch the elegant fire-dance in the sky over the stunning setting of Lake Garda.
