Macao’s grand fireworks display

05 Dec 2018 / 19:57 H.

THE MACAO International Fireworks Display Contest is a major event organised by the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO).

This year, the 29th edition of the contest will be staged above the sea overlooked by the Macau Tower on Sept 1, 8, 15, and 24, as well as Oct 1, from 5pm to 11pm each night.

Ten pyrotechnic teams will present spectacular fireworks displays, synchronised to music and laser lights, with themes like Magical Colours in Harmony; A Mystified Fireworks Dream; Shining Voices of Heaven; A Sparkling Mid-Autumn Night; and National Day Fireworks Celebration.

An accompanying carnival offers visitors a confluence of delicacies, performances and games, enriching the event with more fantastic experiences.

Fireworks teams from the Philippines, Japan, Portugal, Germany, Austria, and Italy will be returning to Macao to participate, while teams from Korea, Belgium, France and China will make their debut.

For the best views, wait around the shoreline overlooked by the Macau Tower, Kun Iam Ecumenical Centre and Macao Science Center, the shoreline in Taipa, the top of Penha Hill, as well as the leisure, cultural and creative landmark Anim’Arte Nam Van.

Four outreach programs will be held in tandem with the Macao International Fireworks Display Contest this year, including the newly launched Songwriting Contest, the widely-popular Photo Contest, Student Drawing Contest, and Trophy Design Contest.

MGTO will continue to broaden the spectrum of spectacular events and leisure elements in Macao in collaboration with different sectors, making relentless efforts to breathe a new dynamic into the tourism industry, parallel with Macao’s transformation into a world centre of tourism and leisure.
