The fireworks festival of Monaco 2013: fireworks, music, and tons of impressions
Every summer since 1996 the City Hall of Monaco has been organizing this extraordinary contest in the Port Hercules. The participants, representing various countries, try to excel one another in beauty and originality of fireworks and music. The shows are held during two nights of July, and two nights of August. Each time one country represents its show, and based on the results is awarded 10,000.00 euro.

Useful: Avenue d’Ostende and the Port Hercules are the best place to watch the shows from (and it’s worth making advance reservation in the bars of the port). Every show is around 25 minutes long.
