The first pyrotechnic festival took place in Cannes in 1967. Since then the event has become an annual tradition. The main task of participants of the festival is to make a perfect plan that combines a pyrotechnic program and music. Hundreds of missiles that soar up supported by the sounds of classical and modern music look simply mesmerizing. The shows take place every evening and start at 22:00. Each performance lasts at least 25 minutes. In the last decade of August the jury selects the winner of the competition. The festival ends with fireworks in honor of the winner.
The festival held in honor of Saint Sarah is another interesting holiday. As a rule the holiday takes place on May 25. Sarah is considered the patron saint of Roma. During this solemn day main squares, public gardens and parks of the city become the location for interesting musical shows. The event traditionally attracts the best music bands of the city, so familiar motifs of gypsy tunes can be heard all day long until late at night in parks of the city. Cannes is often called "the world capital of cinema", but this definition is rather sparingly and not serious, because cultural life of this beautiful city is so rich and multi-faceted.
