Professional pyrotechnicians will be responsible for the launching.

There won’t be any opportunity to launch private fireworks where people gather for common fireworks. The actual launching area will be blocked with plastic cordons and guards.

Please, respect the ban on fireworks in urban areas, especially in the zone shown in the map below, and also in dry nature, harbours and other areas with high risk of fire.
