When I was a kid, fireworks are one of the things that made me feel like I was on a cloud nine; it never failed to surprise and amaze me with its vibrant colors and unexpected forms. Up until now, every time I see firework displays, I cannot help but to reminisce that feeling, which makes me miss the fun of being a kid. Hence, even though I am on my 20’s already, firework displays are what I always look forward to seeing every New Year’s Eve and every year at the Philippine International Pyromusical Competition.

And just last February 11, PIPC officially began starting with the opening show by the Philippines’ award-winning Platinum Fireworks.

Although, Philippines is not part of the competition, its firework display stunned everyone through its bright colors and outstanding synchronization to music.

But afterwards, France’s Pyragric Feux D’Artifice stole the spotlight through its good choice of music that was all in synced perfectly with its firework display.

What is more, the way they maximize the stage through the systematized spread of lights and colors of the fireworks made the moment even more beautiful and unforgettable.

The night was capped off by a special Valentine’s Day performance by Bamboo that made the night even more special!

Overall, this experience is certainly something I would love to share with my loved ones every year and every Valentine’s Day! And I cannot wait to see what other participants prepared for this competition this upcoming Saturdays!
