A preview of the World Pyro Olympics 2009
The World Pyro Olympics 2009 looks like it's set to be an incredible display of fireworks and music, with two participants scheduled to perform for 18 minutes each during the first four Saturdays. For the first time ever, three previous champions, Australia, China and Italy, will compete against one another. Also worth watching for: Japan's entry, from the providers of Tokyo Disneyland's fireworks displays, as well as Canada's, which will be synchronized with the music of Journey's Arnel Pineda.
On the last day, December 19, all participants will perform in the "Fellowship of Fire" before the finale: a fireworks display from the Philippines' La Mancha Group International, which performed the sole pyro-musical exhibit last year. The World Pyro Olympics kicks off on November 21 and continues on November 28, December 5, 12 and 19 at The Fort Open Grounds in Taguig.
