JOUNIEH: The Jounieh International Festival Friday evening kicked off its festivities with its annual fireworks show.

Seven minutes of synchronized fireworks along the coast of Jounieh lit up the skies with changing colors as boats gathered on the bay for private parties.

Hundreds of people gathered in several areas in the north Beirut region to watch the spectacle, dispelling, even if momentarily, fears over security concerns in the country.

The festival will include a family day out on July 4 and a concert by Elias Rahabni on July 2 at Fouad Chehab Stadium.
