The festival, sponsored by Vietnam’s Sun Group, will span five nights.

The opening ceremony is scheduled for June 8, and fireworks displays will be held on Saturdays during the following weeks until the final round of the annual competition on July 13.

Each team will have 20 minutes to light up the sky above the central Vietnam city.

The Da Nang International Fireworks Festival was first organized in 2008.

During that period, the city received up to 150 flights per day, a 1.5-fold increase compared to normal days. Additionally, hotel occupancy rates soared to 70 percent.
