November 24, 2009
The Executive Committee of the World Pyro Olympics (WPO) '09 announced the RESCHEDULING of the WPO, originally set on November 28, December 5, 12 and 19, to January 2010.
The incessant rains and flooding during the past months have rendered the firing area almost unfit for pyrotechnics launchings which have certain international standards to observe. The participating countries have thus agreed to reschedule the event.
Tickets purchased will still be honored on the new event dates. Final dates will be announced soon. Ticket holders are requested to contact our hotlines at 568-6908 / 384-0239 or visit the WPO official website for more details.
The annual World Pyro Olympics will now be held at The Fort Bonifacio Open Grounds Global City Taguig (behind Bonifacio High Street) Hmm. Not sure if this is a good idea but we'll see! Events will be held for five consecutive Saturdays starting on November 21, 2009.
New show format
IT'S THE 1ST PYROMUSICAL COMPETITION IN THE PHILIPPINES!!!! This means all shows will be synchronized to music. Ha! How cool is that?
Here's the final schedule:
21 November - Germany, China
28 November - Canada, Australia
05 December - Japan, Italy
12 December - Korea, USA
