Newcomer Finland and two-time winners Italy sparked the third night of the 2019 Da Nang International Fireworks Festival on June 15, lighting up the Han River with sky range and water space launched fireworks on their first show in the central city.
Running from June to July, DIFF 2019 is the tenth edition of the competition having been held annually in Da Nang since 2008, with its opening night being organized on June 1.
The Finnish first-time contender JoHo Pyro Professional AB surprised the audience with an outstanding performance, which to many was evaluated as even more impressive than that of Parente Fireworks Group from Italy, who was crowned the champion in 2011 and 2012.
Entitled “Hero On the River,” the Finnish pyrotechnic show told a tale about a hero named Lemminkainen. In Finnish legends, Lemminkainen had to make a significant effort to conquer the terrifying Tuoni River in order to win the heart of a beautiful young lady. The fireworks danced in the dark night to the background music which was a combination of rock, metal, and classical music, filling the audience with various emotions.
JoHo Pyro Professional AB impressed the viewers with low-range displays and fireworks being set off near the audience’s location, both of which created a feeling of closeness to the admirers. Having won over many hearts, the team is now considered a fierce competitor. Here are some photos of JoHo Pyro Professional AB’s performance:
The Italian team’s performance had ‘Drops’ as its theme. It featured a journey from the place where emotions are born up to the place where they become universal. Drop by drop the show river flow merges to become one with a long way of an emotion that is born, grows, and dugs the world with its force, changing it.
