Where to see the Bordeaux fireworks?

One of the advantages of living in Bordeaux is undoubtedly the multiplicity of its wide open spaces, especially around the Garonne. The sky is visible from almost all parts of the city. But among the crowd, it is difficult to fight your way to settle in front of the pyrotechnic spectacle. The quays on the left bank are often very popular with Bordeaux residents, but if you arrive early, you can benefit from an ideal location at the front row. You will take full advantage of this July 14 celebration.

Settle down in the Saint-Michel sports park to enjoy an unobstructed view as well as in the Angéliques park located on the right bank. You can also admire the fireworks a little further from the Chaban-Delmas bridge, which offers a magnificent panorama over the river.
