Every year, on the third week of August, a fireworks festival (Vuurwerkfestival) takes place in Scheveningen – a little beach town near Den Haag. The event is held on the beach at Van der Valk Pier. Fireworks producers from several countries participate in a contest exhibition – Scheveningen Fireworks Trophy.
Through the three days of the noisy colorful festival, thousands of spectators locals and tourist (it is recommended to make a room reservation in advance) gather to watch the beauty that light up the sky in a ceaseless noise.
Two shows are held every evening. On the third one the organizers announce who is the winning producer.
