World's Biggest Ever Fireworks Display

Stunning Yellow Peonies

CHINA will stage the world's biggest-ever fireworks display in Beijing this week to mark 60 years of communist rule, state media reported today.

The Asian giant has imposed a huge security clampdown in the capital ahead of October 1 celebrations, which will include a military parade, song and dance performances, and the huge fireworks show around Tiananmen Square.

The National Day fireworks display will include more than 20,000 fireworks shells - double the number used to light up the sky for the Olympic opening ceremony last year, the official Global Times newspaper reported.

Quoting Ding Zhenkuan, director of the fireworks performance, the newspaper said there would be 99 launch bases for the rockets, including Tiananmen Square and Chang'an Avenue - the route for the parade.
