Da Nang International Fireworks Festival 2017

Now spreadeagled over two months the Da Nang International Fireworks Festival  has become Vietnam’s most spectacular fireworks event by far. It commences on Sunday, 30 April culminating in a Closing Ceremony and Final Round Saturday, 24 June. Eight countries are competing and they are in order of  performance:  Vietnam, Austria,  Switzerland, Japan, China, United Kingdom, Australia and Italy.

 

For the first time Vietnam has a long festival reaching into the heart of summer. Alongside the ongoing fireworks street carnivals and food festivals will take place on an unprecedented scale making Da Nang a must-visit for tourists in the area.

 

The theme of the Fireworks Festival is ‘Shining Marble Mountains’. And, reflecting the ancient understanding of the nearby Marble Mountains, the fireworks events will rotate through the five key elements — Hoa (Fire); Tho (Earth); Kim (Metal); Thuy (Water); Moc (Wood) – that the Marble Mountains themselves represent. The five elements that constitute all things. See more about the Ancient Chinese philosophy of the five elements here.

 

Each performance is not only a festival of sound and light but also a masterpiece, an artistic whole illustrating the beautiful heritage of Vietnam.
