The International Firework 2018 was a real success with a lot of people and huge breathtaking fireworks. There was a big problem when the second firework started (Italy) and the barges started being in fire with uncontrolled spots in 3 different places. One barge stopped shooting in the middle of the firework, and some others shot in random directions. The music pause that was supposed to last 15 min had to be extended to +45 min to give the time to the staff to stop the fire and check that everything was ready to continue.

In the video you can see the firemen working in dangerous conditions, using fire extinguishers while the firework were exploding around them.

Finally the 2 last fireworks were shoot and they were awesome. There were a lot of unique firework, letter or heart shaped.
Overall that was a great night, organization was top, as good as before. You could have a seat close to the stage in the VIP area for 300 baht for each person. The only difference this year was that the main sponsor was Leo Beer instead of Chang Beer. Alcohol was sold at the Leo booth which is prohibited by the law on beach road but, I guess the City Hall didn’t had any other option, someone had to pay for this expensive firework, and millions have enjoyed it!

 

The firework started good.

The barges went on fire. The pause had to be extended to 45 min to allow the firemen to take care of the situation.

 

When the fire is finally extinguished, the firework can continue with 2x 20 min fireworks from Sweden and UK.
