The fourth night of the Da Nang International Fireworks Festival (DIFF) 2018 took place under the theme “Desire”.
Through fireworks, team Göteborgs FyrverkeriFabrik from Sweden told a story about the bridges, rivers and friendship between its country and Vietnam.
The background music also featured bridge-themed songs, including some rock ones composed in the 1980s.
Leif Martin Hildeberg, head of the team, said the long-standing friendship between Vietnam and Sweden inspired his team’s firework show.
Meanwhile, team Grupo Luso Pirotecnia of Portugal had a skillful performance by using new types of fireworks and rock music for their display.
Earlier, local residents and visitors to Da Nang enjoyed fireworks displays of the teams from Vietnam and Poland on April 30th, France and the U.S. on May 26th, Italy and Hong Kong (China) on June 2nd.
The best two teams, which are expected to be announced on June 10th, will perform in the finale on June 30th.
Apart from the overall theme “The Legend of Bridges” of the DIFF 2018, each of the fireworks nights also takes its own theme, namely Love, Time, Happiness, Desire, and Friendship.
The annual event was first held in 2008 and has become a special attraction of Da Nang city.
