Summer Firework Displays

As the summer season starts, the evening skies of North Catalonia whizz, pop and crackle to the sight and sound of fireworks displays, sometimes musical, sometimes echoing over sea and port, or illumating anicient bell towers, chateaux and mountains.

Here is a list of some of the promised firework displays coming up over the tourist season. Do check however with the local tourist office, that they will still be taking place on the day at the time shown as weather, strikes and other circumstances may causes changes to the schedule.

Also, just a little note on firework safety.  Please be aware that rules & regulations in France are much stricter than in the UK and certain fireworks you can buy in the UK may be banned in France, and for good reason!
