It’s June, and that can only mean one thing! Fun, fireworks and magic as the Festival of the Atlantic blasts into action. This year we have four countries (Italy, Poland, Mexico and Portugal) competing for the coveted prize of creating Madeira’s spectacular end of year firework extravaganza. The firework displays will take place at 22.30 on the 8th (Italy – ‘Thrones of Fireworks’), 15th (Poland – Bouquet of Emotions’), 22nd (Mexico – ‘Baila Mexico’) and 29th (Portugal – ‘Glorious’). And this year for the first time, the festival celebrations have been extended to include Porto Santo. The fireworks show will take place on the 30th at 22.30 at the old city pier.
