Around 9,000 fireworks will be launched and pyrotechnicians from across the country attend to show off their skills. This is a competition, so you’ll be sure to see their best efforts!
The fireworks will shoot off from 7:15 p.m. until 8:50 p.m. While the fireworks will go ahead if it rains, if the weather turns stormy then the fireworks will be postponed to September 9 (and then Sep. 10).
