Fireworks of different effects and colors wowed the audience during the opening ceremony of Da Nang International Fireworks Festival 2019 (DIFF2019) on Saturday night.

The month-long fest in coastal Da Nang, located in central Vietnam, kicked off with fireworks displays from Vietnam and Russia.

Team Vietnam from the central hub used 4,320 fireworks of different types including Roman candles, sparklers, cakes, catherine wheels, and airbombs, among others, as well as several aquatic fireworks, which are only available in professional displays, creating a pyrotechnic effect on the water or over the water.

The 20-minute performance consisted of five parts with various effects and matching music.

Themed "Legends of the Two Banks," the performance retold a story of young developing Da Nang on its journey to integration.

The background music used for the performance was energetic, dynamic, and motivating melodies and songs including One Above All, Touch by Touch, Viet Nam oi (Hey Vietnam), and Da Nang fireworks love songs.

However, due to the constant firing of fireworks and a lack of strong enough winds to blow the smoke away, the view of the spectators was affected.

Representing Russia, Firework Center Khan staged a pyrotechnic performance themed “The Dance of Water and Fire."

While the Vietnamese performance was filled with energy, the 21-minute display of the Russian team’s background music was a harmonious combination of melodious love ballads and a festive mood.

The team impressed the audience with a suitable rhythm, making the climax of the performance clear to those admiring it.

In addition, the team reasonably spread out the fireworks, avoiding building up smoke, which helped them attain a beautiful and “clean” performance that the audience could easily follow.

The Fireworks Center Khan began being involved in pyrotechnic displays in Russia in 1993.

This is also an experienced and professional fireworks display company that has made its name through several important awards from fireworks contests and festivals in France, Russia, Croatia, South Korea, Germany, Italy, and Poland.
