an Absolute classic on oudejaar is the firework display on the Large Beach of Ostend. An estimated fifteen thousand revelers came at midnight together on the seafront to marvel at the spectacle. “It was ideal weather for a beautiful fireworks display”, says Vincent Drouard of Tourism Ostend. “There was little wind and the temperatures were mild. In addition, it was the fireworks of last year's canceled due to bad weather (and an additional light show in the Adolf Buylstraat organized, ed.). Therefore longed even more people to the fireworks.”
The spectacle was in good jobs, led by the Party-Fices Names, that last year the fireworks had to organise. Of course, brought many groups feestneuzen a bottle of cava, prosecco or champagne to the dike. “We have five network of bottle banks on the seawall, so that people afterwards can easily their empty bottle lost. Last year, the containers are a first time installed, but only this year have we really needed it”, winks Drouard.
Also in Middelkerke and Westende, it is fireworks from the beach a classic. In De Panne is on new year's day fireworks shot to 18 hours, also from the beach.
