Laeken Firework Spectacular 2018

Fireworks will light up the sky of the capital city for five nights on the Fridays of 27 July, and 3, 10, 17 and 24 August. The Laeken Firework will be held on the Heysel Plateau at the foot of the Palais 5. 

Last summer, the City of Brussels launched five new convivial events on the Heysel Plateau: Laeken Firework Spectacular.

Designed to reinforce other events in the north of the capital, the first edition was a huge success: over 43,000 locals joined in on the fun!

And because the City of Brussels knows how important it is to organize family-friendly activities, the Firework Spectacular is back this year.

On Friday 27 July, plus 3, 10 , 17 and 24 August, a small village will be installed around the Atomium. Various activities will be organized, giving Laeken families, the people of Brussels and tourists the opportunity to take part, be entertained and enjoy delicious food and drinks from the many food trucks.

Dance and street performances, workshops, demonstrations, games, introductory sessions… Both young and old will find plenty to their liking!

And every night at 11 pm, a talented pyrotechnician will stage a dazzling firework display from the foot of Palais 5.

These five events will add even more luster to the summer programme already in place at the Heysel Plateau: Mini Europe, Océade…, as well as tours of the Atomium, the celebrations and exhibitions organized to mark the monument’s sixtieth birthday.

Diversity, warmth and interaction, our capital’s biggest strengths, will be the main ingredients for Laeken Firework Spectacular.

Once more this year, summer in Brussels will start with a bang!
