Blanes Fireworks Competition 2014

Blanes Fireworks Competition 2014

2014 is the 44th annual edition of this fabulous competition officially called El Focs de Blanes.

Historical records for the region show that fireworks were widely used in the Blanes area as far back as 1891. The only time it stopped completely was during the civil war in 1936 and then it restarted, if on a smaller level in 1944. Since 1970, the event has been an annual fixture in the Costa Brava calendar in an attempt to promote tourism in the region.

The competition is being held on Wednesday 24th July to Saturday 26th July and the show centres around the Sa Palomera area. The firing starts at 10:30 (being that it is mid Summer, it is commonplace anywhere in Spain to witness fireworks most nights in some area or another and fireworks are only really cool after dark) and the fireworks can be viewed from a number of areas along the coast.

If you are fortunate enough to be visiting the area on holiday at the time of the event (having visited Lloret de Mar and Tossa de Mar previously, it is a lovely area if you get away from the hustle and bustle) get yourselves along to see the show.

Unfortunately, details of the event are still very limited so we will endeavour to bring information to you as soon as it presents itself.
