Here is the display from the French company Pyragric at the 2014 Cannes Fireworks Festival.
It looks like it was a very still night, or possibly slightly misty. There’s nothing a company can do about the weather, but it is always a frustration as it can mean fireworks get lost in the smoke or the mist. It looks like Pyragic may have suffered from this, a shame as it looked like there was some very nice detail in their finale which got somewhat lost. We did like the very gallic ‘Je ne regrette rien’.
As the organiser of the world’s biggest fireworks competition we know you want a little bit of wind – to keep the smoke moving – but not so much that the fireworks drift.
