Fodor's Expert Review Els Focs de Blanes

Blanes Family

The summer event in Blanes that everyone waits for is the fireworks competition, held every night at 11, around July 23–26 (dates vary year to year; check the website for the schedule), which coincides with the town's annual festival. The fireworks are launched over the water from a rocky outcropping in the middle of the seaside promenade known as Sa Palomera while people watch from the beach and surrounding area as more gunpowder is burned in a half hour than at the battle of Trafalgar.
