The highly anticipated Monaco Fireworks festival kicks off next week, evoking colours that will set the Monegasque sky on fire.
Four artificers of different nationalities will compete for this year’s competition, to be held on 20th and 27th July, and 3rd and 10th August.
But audiences can expect more than just a fireworks display. The Monaco City Council has organised parties and concerts on the Port of Monaco that will take place before and after each pyrotechnic show.
Saturday 20th July. 1st show – Lithuania
Saturday 27th July. 2nd show – Spain
Saturday 3rd August. 3rd show – England
Saturday 10th August. 4th show – Ukraine
The Jury Prize and the Audience Award will reward the best shows at the end of the competition. The members of the jury, chaired by the Mayor of Monaco or his representative, will evaluate pyromusical shows according to specific scoring criteria.
Again this year, the public will also be able to vote on the website www.monac-feuxdartifice.mc the day after each show. The Public Prize will be awarded to the fireworks display that obtained the highest rating from Internet users, at the end of the competition.
National Council President Stéphane Valeri has visited the Grimaldi Forum to thank the team behind the screening campaign, while also encouraging more people to take the Covid-19 antibody test.
Prince Albert has been tested at a Covid-19 screening centre in Monaco to raise awareness about the government’s campaign to have as many people of the Principality tested as possible.
Monaco’s primary students made their return to school on Monday, the final group to do so in the government’s three-phase plan to lift the lockdown.
The Principality ordered some 11.5 million masks at the height of the crisis. Now those masks are being safely stored by the government for a rainy day.
