The pyrotechnic displays that were due to be held on 9 September as part of the 31st Macau International Fireworks Display Contest, but postponed due to poor weather, will take place this evening.

According to an official statement, teams from Australia and Switzerland will kick off the contest with displays at 9:00 pm and 9:40 pm respectively.

The Australian show, entitled “Thunder from Down Under” will feature pyrotechnic representations of native Australian flora, fauna, and landscapes, set to the country’s pop and rock hits.
