It’s time to light up the sky.
Once again, Da Nang will proudly host the international fireworks competition. This only happens once every two years and is truly a sight to behold. The enormous crowds and sudden influx of even more neon and karaoke around the city are almost as entertaining as the professionally choreographed firework displays happening overhead.
Six countries will send their best and most successful pyros to compete to become the world champions of fireworks. These are not just your regular small town works; they are a thoughtfully arranged art work that dances to music representing the countries.
This year Da Nang has opted to stagger the competitions to alleviate the on-the-brink-of-madness sized crowds of past years. Festivities will run for nearly two months, with each round focused on a different essential element of life – fire, earth, metal, water and wood. First up to compete are Austria and the competition’s host, Vietnam. Switzerland and Japan take to the celestial stage on May 20, followed by China and the UK one week later. Australia and Italy will bring their A games on June 3. The closing ceremony and final round is June 24. All competitions will be visible from along the Han River in town.

Come join the fun and frenzy of the Da Nang International Fireworks Competition 2017!
