Courchevel International Festival of Pyrotechnic Art

WHAT: Courchevel International Festival of Pyrotechnic Art
WHEN: 12TH FEBRUARY – 5TH MARCH 2015
WHERE: COURCHEVEL, FRENCH ALPS

This year’s competition event in the stunning setting of the beautiful French Alps is the Courchevel International Festival of Pyrotechnic Art and the event keeps growing each year since its inception in 2003.

This majestic firework competition was won last year by the supremely talented Smart Pyrotechnics who beat out some of the longest established display companies across Europe to the prize with their absolutely amazing display, packed with effects from the outset.

The fireworks are scored on a number of factors including avoiding those terrifying ‘dark sky’ moments and of course ensuring that the display is well paced and has plenty of variety of effect, sound and of course choreography to music.

As you are probably well aware, I have a particular passion for symmetry which is one of the main aspects of the overall display the judges will be looking for alongside the music and its relativity to the pyrotechnics.

The fireworks competitors will display every Thursday evening at 6:45pm from the 12th February so this week sees Super Power from Poland showing their wares.

12 February GMT EVENT – Romania
19 February SUPER POWER- Poland
26 February PANDORA PYROTECHNIE – France
3 March PIROTECNIA VALECEA - Spain

There are events throughout the ‘ski’ season and one of the most spectacular during this festival event is the one held by the ski instructors who start off the evening entertainment with torches aloft as they ski down the piste. There are all manner of pyro events – check out the video:
