Each year, on the first weekend of September, take place the “Arras’ bell tower fireworks”, which gather not less than 100,000 spectators. The topic of the show is different every year. The bell tower of Arras was classified in July 2005 as part of the “World Inheritance of Humanity” by UNESCO along with 22 other bell towers of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region and the Somme.
Here are a few pictures of the 2005 festival :
These photos were taken by Christophe Blanc, a French photographer who loves fireworks. His website: http://christopheblanc.free.fr/ offers wonderful pictures of various fireworks in France and abroad.
