The KFM Symphony of Fire

If you're going to be in Cape Town on the 29th of March, why not head down to the V&A Waterfront and treat yourself and loved ones to one of the most spectacular firework displays you will ever see. The Symphony of Fire is the largest event of this nature on the African continent and is the first in a series of displays where fireworks display companies will battle it out to see who is regarded as the better of the lot. The three teams from South Africa, Spain and Canada will each put on an amazing display of fireworks which will be choreographed to music and last approximately 25 minutes.

Each Country is to set up their display in their own country with South Africa launching their display from the Breakwater at the V&A Waterfront. The Spanish team will operate from Valencia, Spain on 1 April while the Canadian team will dazzle their audiences in Montreal on 5 April. The verdict will be given and the event will culminate in a Grand Finale of pyrotechnics on Saturday 8 April.

People attending the South African event will be able to choose between grandstand seating and picnic grounds and gates will open at 17:00. The Fireworks will begin at 20:30 regardless of inclement weather and no access to the grandstand seating will be permitted after the display has started. Refreshments will also be on sale and those with families will be able to make use of the mini-flea market, jumping castle and children's rides. Ticket prices range from R110 to R160 and cheaper tickets can be bought for children under 12 years of age. Tickets can be bought at the gate or from Computicket.
