From 3.00 p.m. onwards, specially selected employees will begin work, who will work alongside the personnel of the City Council and the appointed company, to start, one by one, the lighting of the 100,000 candles on the Lungarni, between the Ponte della Cittadella and the Ponte della Fortezza, until dusk, when the public and private artificial lighting will be turned off and the Lungarni will begin to immerse themselves in the magical evening of San Ranieri.

At 11.00 p.m., as tradition has it, the fireworks display is scheduled to begin on the Lungarni, with a series of spectacular fireworks, lasting about 30 minutes, fired from the floating platforms placed on the Arno.
