Torcida, the famous fan group for Croatia’s soccer club Hajduk Split, took a break from celebrating their beloved team to acknowledge their own 70th anniversary on October 28 by lighting up Split’s night sky with a display of fireworks and flares.

Split resident Josip Balic captured drone footage of the midnight event, showcasing the vastness of the celebration, perhaps second only to the fireworks-and-flares display in 2011 when the Hajduk Split football club turned 100.
