The Macao International Fireworks Display Contest will return to the city from September 9 to October 7, after a three-year hiatus.
Organised by Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO), the 31st edition of the contest will see fireworks companies from 10 countries around the world bringing their spectacular fireworks to life for residents and visitors.
At the press conference on August 28 where MGTO unveiled details about the contest and its outreach programmes, its director Maria Helena de Senna Fernandes expressed that MGTO is committed to attaining the goal of deepening integration across “tourism +”. She hopes that the colourful experiences brought by the contest can immerse worldwide travellers in the fascination of “tourism + event” at different corners of the city.
Ten shows will be put up in the evening, each spanning about 18 minutes, on September 9, 16 and 23, as well as October 1 and 7.
Five vantage points – Kun Iam Ecumenical Centre to Leisure Area of Kun Iam Statue Waterfront on Avenida Dr. Sun Yat-Sen, the waterfront at Macao Science Center, Anim’Arte NAM VAN, Avenida de Sagres and Avenida do Oceano in Taipa – are recommended.
