The combination of fireworks, classical music and the stunning surroundings make the city an exciting place to be. For 2007, contestants include specialists from Russia (12 May), Italy (26 May), South Africa (25 August), Great Britain (8 September) and Portugal (22 September).
A wide range of stalls offer food and drink, while concerts, theatre and cabaret performances transform the gardens into a vibrant late-night festival.
