The night sky of Mauritius was set ablaze last week as more than 500 guests witnessed some of the world’s leading pyrotechnic artists go head to head in a two-night firework contest at Constance Le Prince Maurice.
The dramatic and vibrant finale of this one-off event was judged by Eric Serra, artistic director for French filmmaker Luc Besson and Christophe Plantier, general manager at Constance Le Prince Maurice.
Competition was tight with Thierry Lepretre (representing France) winning first prize in the pyrotechnic festival and Kamal Seetohul, a Mauritian pyrotechnician taking third place.
More than 12,500 fireworks exploded in this unprecedented event which coincided with the 16th anniversary of Constance Le Prince Maurice.
