Ignis Brunensis - Czech republics Fireworks Competition venue

Ignis Brunensis 2009 is about to start.

So, what is the Ignis Brunensis? It’s a month-long festival of various events. One of these is an international competiton of fireworks. Ignis Brunensis debuted in 1998 and quickly became very popular. Approx. 100,000-200,000 spectators of every fireworks show make it the biggest event in the Czech republic in the term of visitors. Where and when will the fireworks take place this year? On Friday, May 22, you can enjoy a non-competitional fireworks show by Theatrum Pyroboli (CZ) above the St. Peter cathedral in the very centre of the town. Then the festival moves to the Brno dam, an artificial lake 8 km northwest from the town’s centre. The dam can be reached with trams # 1, 3 and 11, as well as special bus lines departing from Česká st. On Saturday, May 23, there’s show by Flash Barrandov SFX (CZ). Pirotecnica Igual (ESP) is presenting their show on Wednesday, May 27. Austrian Pyrovision will have their 30 minutes of fame on Saturday, May 30 and Grupo Luso Pirotecnia (P) will finish the festival on Wednesday, June 3. The “grande finale” can be enjoyed on Friday, June 5 around the Špilberk castle, back in the town’s centre. All the fireworks start right at 10:30 p.m. It does not matter whether it rains. No tickets required. Just find a nice place somewhere on a street or on a bank. Just follow the crowd. Bring your own FM radio and tune 88.3 FM. The shows are synchronised with broadcasted music. Czech it out!
