According to tradition, at 6.30 p.m. Ascona welcomes the New Year with a fantastic fireworks show. On this occasion, many visitors transform the lakefront into a crowded terrace on the lake surrounded by a breath-taking view.
Before the show starts, the Locarnese Chamber Orchestra presents the New Year concert at Collegio Papio. Director Andreas Laake proposes a baroque repertoire.
