Funchal the capital of the Madeira Island has achieved to register a Guinness World Record with its pyrotechnic exhibition, which involved 17 tons of fireworks … that caused 660,300 detonations … 8,000 explosions per minute … over an area of 6 km by 2.7 km wide … more than 8 minutes long.
For those that could not witness this spectacular fireworks display … here is a video that was made on that day. Unfortunately a video will never capture the true atmosphere. Just imagine that all around you the sky is being lit up … that is almost impossible to capture it all on film. As you will notice the first few minutes I was enjoying the show and forgot to take the camera to film around.
