Let’s start with the place farthest from us. The antipodes collect one of the most impressive pyrotechnic shows in the world. You will know the New Year fireworks of Sydney if before eating the grapes you see the news, you know, in its famous Opera with “There is already New Year!”. You can also anticipate the entrance to 2018 if you travel there and, incidentally, you will see one of the most spectacular pyrotechnic shows around the globe. And remember that in Australia it is summer!

If you stay a month, you can also enjoy your national holiday, on January 26, another great show of light and color. On this date of 1788 Arthur Miller arrived to found the famous penal colony of Australia. It is a great day to take a walk through Sydney while the sky is lit with fireworks and the anthem of the country sounds.


We travel from a country famous for surfing to another known for its low temperatures. In Canada, specifically in the city of Vancouver, it is celebrated between the celebration of the Light.

Do you remember V de Vendetta and his November 5? It is not a date that Londoners joke about. On that date, in 1605, an English Catholic named Guy Fawkes planned the so-called Gunpowder Conspiracy to try to destroy the famous Palace of Westminster. Fawkes was arrested – fortunately for many, although not for Alan Moore’s character – and a party is celebrated every November 5 in honor of the frustrated plan.

In commemoration of this, fireworks are launched and a great party is celebrated in the English capital, so it is a good idea to prolong the All Saints Bridge to travel to London and see this great show. Remember, remember, on November 5th …


The country of the rising sun has, apart from one of the earliest New Years in the world like Australia, also enjoys other parties with pyrotechnics. Among them, the Niigata festival stands out.

One of the most fashionable capitals of the modern world also has one of the greatest pyrotechnic shows. As is known, the Dubaitis want to make everything bigger, more spectacular and better. Traditional New Year’s fireworks were not going to be left behind. So much so that in 2014 all records of pyrotechnic material used at the same time were broken. They used a total of 450,000 fireworks in a radius of about 100 square kilometers.


How could we forget one of the most celebrated national holidays? The Fallas provide one of the most special and unique pyrotechnic shows in the world. From March 15 to San José (March 19), Valencians enjoy their big party in style. La Cremà, the ninots, the Mascletà … a party that nobody should miss, let alone if it is so close.
