Dazzling Firework Displays Around the World

There’s something incredibly special about a display of fireworks. Even if it’s just a few rockets, shot off to celebrate the 4th of July or New Year’s Eve, the display can’t help but pull us out of our ordinary lives for a few moments, as we look up to see the night sky painted with bold and bright colors.

All around the world, people use fireworks to celebrate occasions and bring their community together, and while even a small display is fun, a massive display in every color of the rainbow is even better! Here’s a quick primer on some of the best fireworks displays around the world, and how you can catch them live.

Burj Khalifa – Dubai, UAE

Every year, fireworks are set off on New Year’s Eve at the Burj Khalifa, which has the distinction of being the world’s tallest building since 2008. Dubai’s most impressive skyscraper plays host to an incredible annual fireworks display. Organizers use the various balconies and floors to launch tiered fireworks, which has the effect of practically engulfing the building in light, color, and sound. This past year, they added a laser show into the firework display, to make the experience even more spectacular for viewers watching from the Burj Park and throughout downtown Dubai.

Montreal International Fireworks Competition – Canada

Every July and August, the French-Canadian city of Montreal plays host to a massive fireworks competition, where teams from different countries compete to see whose pyrotechnic displays are the most beautiful, complex, and awe-inspiring. Each weekend, a different country puts on a themed display — some of the upcoming ones for this year are “Of Games and Thrones” (from the Philippine team), and “The Butterfly Lovers” (Team China). The fireworks are so huge that they’re visible across the city, but for the best view, head to Parc Jean-Drapeau, and get there early for the best seats. Fireworks start every Saturday at 10 p.m.
