La Corda is the culmination of the Firework Festival and is held on the last Sunday of August in a small city of Paterna, about 10 km away from Valencia. In the morning, following the last Sunday in the month the Spanish sky is filled with fireworks, in fact, over 70,000 rockets and fireworks are being set off in a show that lasts for half an hour. This means that every minute about 2,000 fireworks are fired into the sky. However, it is very dangerous to be too near to it, so the audience is always a few hundred meters away.
