Thanks to my beloved fiance Sherlene and her siblings, they saw the schedule of the much awaited 2nd World Pyro Olympics. She told me about this a few days ago, and I only remembered to post this today ^^;; So read on and see who are the returning participants and the new ones too!
From the 5th to the 7th and 12th to 13th of January 2007, the nine of the most prestigious pyrotechnic companies in the world will once again compete to earn the World Pyro Olympics Throphy, with the 10th participant, the host country – the Philippines – will showcase its grand pyrotechnic capabilities the last day of the event. The host country is not eligible for the competition due to the fact that other categories of the competition like the “People’s Choice Awards” might be biased towards them.
The event will be held at the The Esplanade, at the back of SM Mall of Asia facing the Manila Bay.
The schedule is as follows:
January 5, 2007, Friday
8:00pm Australia (1st World Pyro Olympics Champion)
