Event: World Championship of Fireworks at Cascata del Toce

Here are some of the first, and undoubtedly best, photographs to appear from last nights World Championship of Fireworks performance at  Cascata del Toce. Beginning at 9:45 pm, with perfect weather and clear skies, the "Fiori di Fuoco 2011" performance was the most attended ever.

Certainly the conditions were one reason ... but another was also the great iniative taken by the region to provide buses to tranport visitors from some of the towns along the lake to the site, one hour to the north of Stresa. So popular in fact, that seats on the bus sold out before the closing day of ticket sales, even before knowing if the forecast was for good weather. (I, in fact, was one of those who missed out on a ticket). 

I think maybe I should pre-reserve mine now for next year? Well, in the meantime, before that, I hope to catch one of the other remaining Fiori di Fuoco 2011 performances this summer. Here again is the link to the main site and schedule; I hope to catch one of the remaining performances, and I hope that you can as well:http://www.fioridifuoco.it/index.php?lang=en
