The Monaco Town Council is once again inviting Monegasques and residents to decorate their facades, windows and balconies for National Day on November 19.

As part of this year’s celebrations, two shows for young and old will both be held at the Espace Léo Ferré, by invitation, as well as a fireworks show at the Port of Monaco.

The festivities will begin at 3 pm on Wednesday, November 15, with “Childishness 3”, a concert for children from five years old by Aldebert.

Then on Saturday, November 18, at 8 pm, fireworks at Port Hercules will be followed by a 90-minute show by illusionist Allan Dickens at 9 pm. Levitation, divination, disappearances, a flying ball and other surprises will be repeated again on Sunday, November 19 at 3 pm.

Invitations for these shows, based on availability, can be obtained from the Town Hall (Salle de Mariages), on presentation of an identity card or a resident’s card, from 9 am to 4 pm on

Wednesday, November 8 (Monegasques only) and Thursday, November 9 (for Monegasques and Monaco residents).

During these events, Espace Léo Ferré will give tickets to spectators offering free parking at the Fontvieille and Papalins Shopping Centre. A free bus service will also be set up Saturday, November 18, at the end of the show from the stop at the Centre Commercial in Fontvieille. The shuttle will serve various stops in the Principality according to requests.

A reminder that with National Day falling this year on a Sunday, Monday, November 20, will be a public holiday.
