The spectators

The main purpose of holding this competition has always been to attract visitors of all nationalities in Blanes in order to promote tourism in the town.

A total of 900,000 people will see this year’s fireworks competition in Blanes, held as always during the festa major. Beaches, terraces, promenades, the marina and docks, and the Sant Joan and La Penya mountains will be packed with people (between 120,000 and 150,000 people per day).

The large number of visitors who flock to Blanes for the fireworks competition makes it one of the most well-attended events in Catalonia, approaching the popularity of major festivities in other parts of Spain, such as the San Fermines Festival in Pamplona or the Fallas Festival in Valencia.
