Nit de Focs – Night of Fire – Sitges 2010 – Video Coverage..

Night of Fire in Sitges

The “Nit de Focs” was one of those up-close-and-personal nights with the dragon and beasts of Sitges! Using the Paseo was definitely a good idea for this event as it really showed off just how crazy the fireworks can be.


And its easier to run out of their way when compared to running down the streets of the old town!


Enjoy your Santa Tecla Festivities and don’t forget the fireworks display on Wed night from 11pm.

Sitges – Fiesta Mayor Fireworks 2010

Fiesta Mayor Fireworks

If you were on the Ribera side of the church this year for the Fiesta Mayor Fireworks, then you may have had difficulty seeing many of the fireworks that were high in the sky, due mainly to the extreme humidity and the lack of any wind at sea, to blow the smoke away.

The best views were on the San Sebastian side of the church, particularly high-up by the Hotel Melia Sitges.

They were truly spectacular and despite the smokey view, the atmosphere on the beaches was amazing, as it always is in Sitges!
