Saturday 10 August 2013 at 10:00 pm marks the start of the much anticipated traditional firework display on the quaysides of Geneva harbour.
For the first time in Geneva, proceedings will be opened by the famous Portuguese company Grupo LUSO Pirotecnia de Almada with a journey through traditional and contemporary music characteristic of Portugal
The second part will be staged by the company Pyrostars de Genève on the theme “Conquests and Conquerors’’, presenting a voyage that will take us from the gates of the East and Alexander the Great to New Zealand, discovered by the English, via The Vikings, Genghis Khan, Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus and the great Portuguese conquistador Magellan.
The eagerly awaited culmination of the display will depict the conquest of space, from the first dirigibles to man’s unforgettable first steps on the moon.
The pyrotechnicians expect to present an unforgettable and surprising spectacle filled with enchantment and thrills lasting more than 55 minutes, which we’re sure will remain long in our memories.
