2008 World Pyro Olympics New Schedule


For those who were disappointed of not seeing any fireworks in  the vicinity of SM Mall of Asia this February, I am really sorry. Anyway, I want to make it up to everyone by giving you the updates and changes about it.

The 4th World Pyro Olympics schedule was moved and shall start on the last week of March.

Here’s the new schedule:

March 29 – (still waiting for further announcement)
April 05 – Japan and Australia
April 12 – Korea
April 19 – Italy and Venezuela
April 26 – France and Philippines

According to the official web site of the event, ten countries will be participating yet only the seven listed above are those that have a confirmed schedule. The Philippines, which is the host country, will only be doing an exhibition display and is not really competing.

Each aerial pyrotechnic display shall last for only twenty minutes (20 mins.). The fireworks will be launched by the barges located on the waters of Manila Bay fronting the breakwaters of the Esplanade.

    Dear JJ,

    The World Pyro Olympics committee is still on the process of finalizing team selection and schedule of the event. This is due to the early on set of Rainy season.

    Due to last years incident of typhoon cosme on our fireworks barges being swept to the shore, we are considering the pyromusical to be held on land this year.

    We will update you for any recent development.

    Thank you.

    La Mancha will be performing this year in the ZAGREB CROATIA FIREWORKS FESTIVAL. (They are also experiencing same situation with us.) We got invited to perform our pyromusical on the 19 of June. But it may not push through due to some financial reason from the Croatia Fireworks committee. But, we are still hoping for the best.
