Summer Firework Displays
Throughout July and August, the evening skies of North Catalonia usually whizz, pop and crackle to the sight and sound of fireworks displays, sometimes musical, sometimes echoing over sea and port, or illuminating ancient bell towers, chateaux and mountains.
Because of the drought crisis and the extremely high fire risk, the fireworks seem to have been restricted to just a few dates. Although they are scheduled, do still check 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 and/or cancellations.
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!
