Without a doubt, the Cannes Film Festival has remained the most important event in the cultural life of the city for many years. The internationally famous festival attracts visitors from many different countries. Each year in late May the cozy resort town is visited by a huge number of modern cinema fans and celebrity guests. Palais des Festivals is the main place of the ceremonies. However, cultural life of the city is not limited to the festival. Festival d'art pyrotehnique de Cannes is also a very popular event. The festival typically starts in the middle of July and lasts until the end of August.
This bright holiday will surely not leave any fan of fireworks and pyrotechnic shows indifferent. The shows take place on the Naopule waterfront literally every night. The event attracts teams from many different countries, and each team tries to surprise guests with its original program. It should be noted that this festival is considered the most important and prestigious event of its kind, so the firework shows that take place during the festival are truly spectacular shows.
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.
