Grand Opening

First of all I must explain that this video was not made on Madeira but is from the Bahamas (sorry Madeira Turismo). It was sent to me as a response on my video of the ‘World largest pyrotechnic show – Fireworks’ and I must confess … I was impressed!

This response video is coverage of the fireworks for the Grand Opening of the Cove Tower at the Atlantis Hotel in the Bahamas last May 2007. Now this is what I call a grand opening! (more…)

Happy Fireworks

I was hoping to find a lot of YouTube videos with film impressions of the latest International Fireworks Competition that took place at the Funchal marina (Madeira). But unfortunately not many have yet uploaded their videos.

Ah well …. I did not had my video camera with me, but only my Canon Power Shot S50 digital camera, with it I captured a few images on film. It was on the last Saturday of the competition when country Portugal was giving a great show. As Portugal was the organizing country it did not compete for the title, but gave only a performance.

Okay … I have the video … but now the Music. This time I have chosen one of my favourite music …. “Happy” from the Dutch rockband Intwine.

Check out the video at YouTube … for a “Happy Fireworks” show.

On this page/post you will find a video collection of the fireworks display during Festival do Atlântico (Festival of Atlantic). We are searching for video entries of this happening in YouTube and place them all here. Afterwards we will choose the best (amateur) films made of the pyro-musical display.

If you are living on Madeira Island or have visited recently, and have captured one of the firework spectacle in Funchal and you want to show it here … then you only need to upload it on YouTube and tag it with the word ‘madeira‘ and ‘fireworks‘.
