July/August: Monte-Carlo International Fireworks FestivalSTAY
#monaco This free event attracts thousands from the area to view some of the most beautiful and original fireworks around. The competition has been held since 1966 and brings pyrotechnic specialists from around the world to show off their talent.
Fireworks begin around 9:30PM, or when it is dark. There is good viewing from several locations: around the port sitting at a café, from the palace area or along the ramparts of Fort Antoine, and just off the Casino Terrace. The competition continues through the month of August and the winner returns November 18 to create the fireworks display on the evening before the National Holiday.
