This year promises to break new ground with innovative displays taking to the skies thanks to local and international collaborations.

UK firm Phoenix Fireworks Ltd and Rozzi Fireworks from the US will be performing during the opening night on 21st April in Xaghra, Gozo, while, on 27th April, Martarello Srl from Italy will be working with St Mary Fireworks Factory in Ghaxaq to take centre stage.

There are even more ‘oohhs’ and ‘aahhs’ in store on 30th April, during the event’s Grand Finale: a pyrotechnic show will light up the sky and fireworks will be let off in tune with a live singing and musical orchestra, which will perform music written for the occasion from a floating stage in Malta's majestic Grand Harbour, Valletta.
