The annual International Fireworks Festival in Scheveningen ('Internationaal Vuurwerkfestival Scheveningen') offers two crackling shows of fireworks per evening. Teams from several countries brandish the most vivid kaleidescopic creations of colour and light with the accompanying ear splitting sound in an effort to outdo each other and take home the Fireworks Trophy Scheveningen.
Let off from a pontoon at sea, the sky above Scheveningen will be lighted up by a fairly-like spectacle, to be fully viewed from the boulevard, sidewalk restaurants and beach. The event attracts up to 100,000 visitors, so do come early if you don't want to miss anything from the fireworks shows. There will be changed traffic conditions around Scheveningen on these evenings.
The fireworks displays will be cancelled in the event of strong winds (as of wind force 6) or rain.
