The first and last time I attended the fireworks competition was during the second year of the La Mancha’s World Pyro Olympics in 2007. It was a showcase of captivating fireworks display, and indeed the greatest show on Earth. This year, I am expecting to witness another displays of brilliant lights, but this time with the Second Philippine International Pyromusical Competition.
This coming weekend, February 12, 2011, and the succeeding four more Saturdays, all roads lead to the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City, for the annual event of spectacle of lights and colors in the scenic Manila Bay, where some of the world’s high caliber pyrotechnic experts are expected to paint the sky with brilliant burst of vivid colors.
