Undoubtedly one of the most expected shows in the port that frame the festivities of the Mazatlan Carnival is its ‘Combate Naval’ (fireworks over Mazatlan skyline), where a rain of fireworks illuminates the Paseo Olas Altas where thousands of families and tourists gather.

The ‘Combate Naval’ is a fireworks festival that evokes the most resounding historic achievement of Mazatlan that took place in 1864, the date on which French war took place when a Galician vessel tried to seize the city at the point of cannon fire.

Enjoy this light show with your family on Saturday, February 10, at 22:30 hours.
