Nightglows and Firework Finale

The most iconic part of the Fiesta are our Nightglows and Firework Finales.  At 9pm on Thursday 9th and Saturday 11th a handful of our balloons tether and light up the night’s sky to our specially commissioned soundtrack.

We finish our infamous Nightglow with a Firework Finale.
