FIREWORKS IN MONACO
If you like your fire works big and bold head to Monaco on several dates between 18 July and August to see the international fireworks competition.
Each year countries compete to put on the most spectacular display. They last around 15 minutes and are set to music. They are pretty spectacular. Best places to plonk yourself for the best views are in the port or on the ramparts of Fort Antoine. The fireworks attract thousands of visitors each year so get there early.
Displays start at 9.30pm or when it gets dark, whichever happens first. The teams are really competitive, one year the Chinese accidentally blew up the end of the port in one of their super explosive (no pun intended) displays!
THE FRENCH ELVIS?
The crowned French king of rock and roll, Johnny Hallyday will be playing two shows at Theatre de Verdure on 2nd and 3rd October.
