Firework displays on the Cote d'Azur!

Cannes, Antibes and Monaco demonstrate amazing creativity in big firework displays set to music. Lighting up the bays along the French Riviera, they attract over 200,000 spectators!

The tradition for firework displays remains extremely popular among residents and tourists alike; they flock to the beaches for half an hour of breathtaking beauty on a dozen evenings throughout the months of July and August.
