Last March 14 was the last day of the first Pyromusical olympics where pyrotechnics, light, and music go hand in hand. The venue was at the Mall of Asia, and spectators who wanted to have a “better view” of the fireworks show were required to pay in order to have preference of good vantage.

To avoid traffic,we decided to watch and take photos at CCP breakwaters near Coconut palace. Breakwaters in CCP is my favorite vantage to take Manila Bay sundown. People flocked the area to watch the fireworks but not too many to make it populated. At around 8:20 pm the fireworks started to erupt from a barge and illuminate the manila bay waters.
We watched the skies above the Manila Bay light up in a spectacular display of kaleidoscope colors minus the music that goes with the fireworks. We paid no entrance fee to enjoy the stunning views of the sky show. Philippines hosted the Pyromusical olympics, (featuring our very own Bulacan’s fireworks =p kidding) our display is my favorite of course. The grand finale ended with astounding blue, yellow and red colors. All in all it was a spectacular experience.
