METRO MANILA | The 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition

Friday, February 17, 2012

February is just loaded with colorful things that fill up the sky. First there was the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in Clark, and now the yearly Pyromusical Competition! Now on its 3rd year, the Philippine International Pyromusical Competition has been mesmerizing its audience at the SM Mall of Asia year after year without fail.
The night sky will again be lit for six Saturdays of February and March. The first salvo was held last Saturday with South Korea battling it out with Malta. It was a glorious start for this year’s competition.

The next display of fireworks will be held this Saturday, February 18, at the Bay Area of SM MOA with the United Kingdom and Spain showing off their sparks. And I’m sure Finland, Portugal, China, The Netherlands, Australia, Canada and Italy wouldn’t let the crowd down with their fire prowess in the coming weeks too.

The Pyromusical Competition not only showcases each country’s technical capabilities in delivering mind blowing fireworks but also their creativeness in synching their colorful fire theatrics with music. Each performance lasts an average of 20 minutes, and I’m pretty sure you’ll give your oohhs and aahhs to every minute of the show.
Tickets for the The 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition can be bought at any SM Department Store for Php100.00 (Standing), Php300.00 (Standing), Php500.00 (Free Seating) and Php1,500.00 (Free Seating + Dinner); you may check the seating arrangements here. You might also want to check out the restaurants fronting the bay that has packages that lets you watch the show while dining in comfort.

Show starts at 7PM. Expect some traffic as this is a proven crowd draw, so come early, don’t be late and I’ll see you guys there!
