This year is taking place the 47th Edition of the International Fireworks contest in Blanes, from 22nd to 26th July. Every night from 22:30hs you can enjoy an espectacular fireworks show by the best piroctechnicians of the world.
The great afluency of locals and travellers that enjoy this show, makes it one of the most watched events in Catlaonia, what makes it closer to other Spanish regions regional festivities, like the San Fermines in Pamplona or the Fallas in Valencia .
This event first started in 1970, with the touristic boom of the Costa Brava, and Blanes was searching for something special to stand up the neighbout towns, to attract more travellers to this city. They decided to promote one of the most singular events of its annual celebrations. Thanks to the great response of the audience, every year since then they celebrate this contest to choose the winner of the most espectacular fireworks show. More than one million people see this show every year at the beach, terraces, promenades, ports and mountains of the city and nearbys.
