The World Pyro Olympics 2009 will soon light up the Manila sky, and it’s something to look forward to starting the third week of November. This is the fourth staging of the prestigious event in the country which is just right in time for Christmas. Unlike in the past three years when it was held in the SM Mall of Asia, the 2009 World Pyro Olympics will happen in all of its glimmering splendor at The Fort Open Grounds, Bonifacio Global City Taguig (just behind Bonifacio High Street.) Expect the area to be full with locals and tourists from abroad and all over the country.
We noticed that there seems to be fewer countries participating this year. Another change to expect from the 4th World Pyro Olympics is that it’s going to be a pyromusical competition. Meaning, the fireworks displays will be synchronized to music. It should be an exciting time. I don’t really expect Jaiho being played while fireworks burst across the evening sky 😀
To recap, here’s the schedule of the World Pyro Olympics 2009:
November 21 – Germany, China
November 28 – Japan, Australia
December 5 – Canada, Italy
December 12 – Korea, USA
December 19 – highlights from the participants, to be led by the event host La Mancha International
Past winners in the World Pyro Olympics competitions are:
Australia (2005), United Kingdom (2007), and Italy (2008).
