Firework competition concludes

Switzerland perform final display

Swiss firework display last night

The Diario reports that, like with the displays of the previous two weeks by France and Mexico, the firework display by Switzerland once again brought many people to downtown Funchal (more photos and a video below). This was performed under the theme “Icons – Legends of Rock”.

The third and last day of the pyro-musical competition, part of the Atlantic Festival, was a display by the company ‘La Pirotecnica SAGL di Colombo‘.

The three countries are in the running for the fireworks ‘Atlantic Trophy’, awarded by a jury, as well as the ‘Madeira Trophy, So Tua’, chosen by the public. Voting can be done using raffles placed at the La Vie shopping centre and at the Tourist Information Office of the Regional Directorate of Tourism, on Avenida Arriaga, as well as on the night of the shows, at the Cais do Funchal.

Fireworks not finished yet…

Next Saturday (22:30) sees a “Closing Pyromusical Show” by Macedo’s Pirotecnia, from Portugal, under the theme “Rituals”. This is not in the competition and is performed by the “resident” company that traditionally is responsible for the New Year’s Eve display in Funchal.
