WHAT: PATTAYA INTERNATIONAL FIREWORK FESTIVAL 2015
WHERE: PATTAYA BEACH FRONT ROAD
WHEN: FRIDAY 27th & SATURDAY 28th NOVEMBER 2015
WHY: INTERNATIONAL FIREWORK COMPETITION

The Pattaya International Firework Festival began in 2007 to both celebrate the birthday of their beloved leader and offer a much-needed boost to the local economy. This is the 9th annual event which brings together the best of the best from around the world to entertain and delight the gathered spectators, often numbering into their tens of thousands.

The firework competition takes part in two sections. The first on the Friday, gives the display specialists a 10 minute window during which to wow the crowds on an individual basis before the event on Saturday where the teams will all pull together to put on a 45 minute spectacular. The Countries taking part are from:

· China
· Philippines
· Korea
· Japan

As this is one of the biggest events in Pattaya there is plenty to do. There is entertainment with parades, live music, concerts and traditional and contemporary dance. And of course, there are lots of stalls around selling locally made handicrafts and the shops will stay open until late evening.

The reason for the event is to celebrate the anniversary and birthday of the King of Thailand, Bhumibil Adulyadej who has been on the throne for an impressive 65 years. His continued poor health is of course cause for concern among his very loyal subjects, but at 87, it is not unsurprising that he should be feeling his age.

They also include a flash mob which should be entertaining too but we will bring you the videos of the event as soon as they are available.

Pattaya International Firework Festival 2014

The Pattaya International Firework Festival started in 2007 and continues to runs from strength to strength bringing a much-needed boost to the local economy. This is the 8th annual event which brings together the best of the best from around the world to entertain and delight the gathered thousands.

The competition takes part in two sections and the first on the Friday gives the display specialists a 10 minute window in which to wow the crowds which they do on an individual basis before the event on Saturday where the teams will all pull together to put on a 45 minute spectacular.

As one of the biggest events in Pattaya, there is plenty to do with parades, live music, concerts and traditional and contemporary dance with lots of stalls around selling locally made handicrafts and the shops will stay open until late evening.

The reason for the event is to celebrate the anniversary and birthday of the King of Thailand, Bhumibil Adulyadej who has been on the throne for an impressive 64 years. His continued poor health is of course cause for concern amongst his very loyal subjects but at 86 years of age, it is not unsurprising.

Representing the UK is the team from Pyro 2000, the display specialists from Standard Black Cat of Huddersfield who have shown their prowess in this field and continue to go from strength to strength. They have an impressive client list and very recently were lucky to be awarded runners-up in the Seoul International Fireworks Festival.

Of course, along with the rest of the UK, we will be rooting for Pyro 2000 but they are up against some tough competition from Spain Italy and Germany.

We will update you as soon as further information becomes available.

Pattaya International Fireworks Competition

Pattaya firework festival 2011

This popular festival, which was originally designed as a 2-year competition to honour their Royal Family back in 2009 was funded by the Government and the Ministry of Defence. However, once funding was removed, sadly the Thai team didn’t have the financial backing to compete more recently but thanks to the popularity of the event as a whole and the setting for the event have drawn countries back time after time so they continue to reap the financial benefits of holding a fireworks spectacular of this size stimulating the economy of Pattaya and Chonburi province.

The competition, held over two nights beginning this evening concludes on Saturday. The fireworks will be set up with the sea and the beautiful beaches as a backdrop. Each of the competing teams will have to come up with a 45-minute, musically choreographed show which will set hearts racing. They have to show their skills in combining colours and fireworks effects to get the best of the oohhs and aahhhs available.

Teams are:

• Japan
• Philippines
• Switzerland
• Taiwan

The fireworks will be nothing short of spectacular as you might expect but there are a number of other events being held including:

• DJ’S
• Singers
• Live Bands
• Magic
• Juggling Acts
• 3D Painting and Photography

Whatever the outcome, I am sure that they will be absolutely fantastic and we wish them all the best of luck.
