Just in case you are able to change your booking I should also bring to your attention the amazing fireworks that are presented each year in Annecy, France, which is less than an hour's drive from Geneva (see attached map). Here, each year on the first Saturday of the month of August, for seventy minutes, the bay at Annecy is the location of the largest pyrotechnical presentation in all of Europe. In fact, there is a friendly rivalry between the cities of Geneva and Annecy. Here is a link to everything about la Fête du lac d'Annecy: www.annecy.fr/551-fete-du-lac-d-annecy.htm Here also is a short video of part of the show from this year. youtu.be/rIyDMMYrSlw I love pyromusical presentations, but since I have been to neither Geneva nor Annecy to compare shows, I couldn't say which is better. And of course, each year they are different, so even then you can never be sure. What you can be sure of is that both of them are fan-tas-tique !
If you don't get to change your travel dates for 2018 I hope this information will be useful when you make plans to come back to Switzerland some other year, hopefully very soon.
