Da Nang (VNA) – Teams from Portugal and Sweden treated the audience in Da Nang city with their colourful fireworks performances on the banks of the Han River on June 9 to convey the desire for love and friendship.

The fourth night of the Da Nang International Fireworks Festival (DIFF) 2018 took place under the theme “Desire”.

Through fireworks, team Göteborgs FyrverkeriFabrik from Sweden told a story about the bridges, rivers and friendship between its country and Vietnam. The background music also featured bridge-themed songs, including some rock ones composed in the 1980s.

Leif Martin Hildeberg, head of the team, said the long-standing friendship between Vietnam and Sweden inspired his team’s firework show.

Meanwhile, team Grupo Luso of Portugal had a skillful performance by using new types of fireworks and rock music for their display.

Earlier, local residents and visitors to Da Nang enjoyed fireworks displays of the teams from Vietnam and Poland on April 30, France and the US on May 26, Italy and Hong Kong (China) on June 2.

The best two teams, which are expected to be announced on June 10, will perform in the finale on June 30.

Apart from the overall theme “The Legend of Bridges” of the DIFF 2018, each of the fireworks nights also takes its own theme, namely Love, Time, Happiness, Desire, and Friendship.
