This is one of the biggest summer events in the Bulgarian section of the Danube. The Fiery Danube Festival is the culmi­nation of the annual week of the river, during which diverse cultural and sporting events take place.
On the last day is the traditional “Riv­er Feast” which includes competitions with fishing boats, swimming across the Danube from bank to bank, children’s cartoons, a boza-drinking contest, open-air exhibitions, culinary contests for most delicious fish soup, performances of local dance and music groups. There is scooter riding, flying with a paraglider, a cruise ship between Tutrakan and Oltenitsa, op­era under the stars.
In the evening the wharf turns into a rock concert stage and when it gets dark, the light and fire show “The Fiery Danube” illuminates the river.
