The 8th edition of the Malta International Fireworks Festival
The 8th edition of the Malta International Fireworks Festival will be organised by the Parliamentary Secretariat for Tourism and the Malta Tourism Authority.
The Grand Harbour will once again provide the perfect setting for this edition, which will take place on Thursday, April 30 and Friday May 1.
On each of the two evenings the festival will kick off at 21.30 hrs with a 15-minute fireworks display, designed by a foreign pyrotechnic company. This will be followed by a set of fireworks displays from thirteen local factories in a ‘one by one’ competitive series of displays. This is meant to involve, more than ever before, the local pyrotechnic enthusiasts. For each category, there is a trophy as well as prize money to be won. A fireworks display synchronized to music will close the event on each evening.
Everyone is invited to attend and enjoy the spectacle free. The best locations for viewing the displays are Ta’ Liesse / Barriera Wharf, and Valletta Waterfront or else the top of the bastions that surround Malta’s capital and have commanding views over Grand Harbour.
The festival also serves to commemorate Malta’s accession into the European Union on 1st May 2004.
The Malta International Fireworks Festival 2009 will be held on the 30th April and 1st May 2009.

It is well known throughout the pyro-world that certain fireworks which one can enjoy in the island of Malta are unique and that's why it's a must for every fireworks enthusiast or pyrotechnician to be in Malta for at least once in a lifetime.
This year, 4 pyromusical displays of 15 minutes each will be presented, 3 of which will form part of a competition. Apart from the pyromusical displays, a competition of traditional Maltese fireworks shells will also be presented.
