Skyshow was an annual fireworks event held in Adelaide, South Australia, from 1985 till 2006. The half-hour fireworks display was synchronised to pop music and presented by local commercial radio station SAFM. Originating as an Australia Day celebration, the event was subsequently moved to late summer, usually February.
Although beset with serious financial difficulties in the late 1990s until rescued by the South Australian Government, it is estimated some 150,000 people attend the main festivities in Bonython Park, whilst many more watch from vantage points along the Adelaide Hills. The event ceased in 2006 after funding could not be secured for 2007.
