First night of the world pyro olympics 2008, this is the 3rd year of this spectacular event - a pyrotechnic display from different countries for the duration of twenty (20) minutes - and it is being held in the Philippines, at the Esplanade behind the Mall of Asia to be exact. There are less crowd today compared to last year, not sure if because it rained tonight or because the event was postponed for like the nth time.
Was late for tonights show, thought the pyrotechnic display will start at 9pm as it was last year but the show started earlier, 7:30pm for the first country and then the next display was at 9:00pm. Tonight's show was presented by China and Germany respectively, this particular photo is a part of Germany's show.
In case you missed tonight's show, dont despair, there's still more shows for the whole month of May, here's the schedule of the World Pyro Olympics 2008
