Make sure that you arrive early to secure a good spot, bring along fold up chairs or a picnic blanket and then fill up at one of the nearby food stalls and sample some of the local cuisines before the evening entertainment begins.

SUMMER BURST

Over 13,000 fireworks will be released into the night sky accompanied by music and lasers making it seems like daytime as the audience’s favorites of golden weeping sakura and extra-large Niagara fireworks fill the air, keep an eye out for the fireworks art in the displays or just sit back in awe and take in the kaleidoscope of colours for the hour-long firework show.

INTERNATIONAL PYROMELODIC FIREWORK FESTIVAL 2019

WHAT: INTERNATIONAL PYROMELODIC FIREWORK FESTIVAL 2019
WHY: INTERNATIONAL FIREWORK COMPETITION
WHEN: JULY/AUGUST 2019 (DATES TO BE DETERMINED)
WHERE: MONACO
COST: FREE

The International pyrotechnic competition in Monaco first took place in 1966 and was the first event of its kind. Initially just a pyro competition, it changed to a pyro-melodic competition in 1996 and continues in that format to this day.

Countries compete to thrill the tens of thousands of visitors who gather in the Bay to watch the fireworks explode in the Monegasque skies backed up by a powerful sound system which will ensure that everyone gets to enjoy the full impact of the shows on offer with the perfect marriage of music and pyrotechnics.

Last year the competition became the pyro-melodic event it is today and changed its name to Monaco Arten Ciel.

Café’s and restaurants surround Port Hercule, The Palace and Walls of Fort Antonio so there are plenty of places to meet and greet and many of these have uninterrupted views of the fireworks; so you can sip your champagne, whilst watching the stunning effects.

As with most things, you can do this event either on a budget or as a full spend-fest, depending on what you are looking for:

RESTAURANTS

Blue Bay – French/Mediterranean Cuisine

Quite pricey but as a very special day out, worth every penny with excellent service with taster menus or the full a-la-carte jobby to whet your appetite.

Maison des Pates Monaco – Italian/Mediterranean

This place does a huge range of fresh Italian pasta which the reviews say is second to none. You choose a portion of whichever pasta you want (usually €7 – €10) and then a choice of sauces from €1 for a delicious Bolognese sauce to a creamy salmon sauce for €4.50. Two people can each well for under €30.00.

Sexy Tacos – Mexican (vegetarian/vegan-friendly dishes available)

Reviews for this place are really good and if you want a relatively spicy authentic taste of Mexico, pared back slightly for the European market but if you want a tasty and different meal, get along there as this is ‘the one’.

Les Perles de Monte Carlo – French, seafood specialists, Mediterranean

Specialists in all thing seafood, as they are harbourside and are also wholesale suppliers to the local restaurants. It has an upbeat feel and you can even pick your own lobster.  The restaurant also supplies seafood to local restaurants in the region, so you know it is of the best quality around they even have their own oyster beds! It is not fancy but the food more than makes up for it so if you are a fish and seafood lover, this is THE place to go.

If you are staying in Monaco for a few days, you might want to take in a show – The Beach Boys are in concert over there in July and have been in the entertainment business for over 50-years and are still packing the audiences in.

We will bring you news of the companies participating in the 2019 Firework event as soon as details are available.

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.
