The best fireworks of Cannes and the Côte-d’Azur near our camping Le Sourire.


A few kilometres from the campsite; the stunning fireworks of Cannes

The Côte-d’Azur is very lively in summer. A great number of festive events, such as the French National Holiday, are the ideal occasion to admire glittering fireworks. The yearly Pyrotechnics Art Festival of Cannes is a unique event thanks to the extraordinary firework shows. From 14 July to 24 August, like other years, the best firework specialists from all over the world will represent their country with a specific theme. If they convince the jury, they’ll get a silver statuette and access to next year’s competition to win the golden statuette. A jury prize and public prize will also be distributed. Every night, this colourful event attracts thousands of visitors to the bay of Cannes.


Monaco, Nice, Antibes… The glittering pearls of the Côte-d’Azur


Antibes and Juan-les-Pins

In Antibes, one of the most pleasant beach resorts near Cannes, you’ll also find fireworks. At less than an hour drive from our campsites, you can discover the Festival Pyromélodique of Antibes, organised from 13 July to 24 August on the splendid beaches. On 13 and 14 July, the sky above town will be illuminated with fireworks around 10.30 pm. On 3, 10, 7 and 24 August, the bay of Juan-les-Pins will organise shows with sound and light.

Nice and its Promenade des Anglais

In Nice the famous Promenade des Anglais will be the setting of the fireworks of 14 July and 15 August. During these shows, a « Prom’Party » will be organised as well, with a great number of concerts near the beaches.

Firework competition of Monaco
