World Pyro Olympics 2009 Cancelled

Sadly, the World Pyro Olympics 2009 has been canceled and is rescheduled for January 2010. This was after the weather did not cooperate with last weekend's fireworks display.

The two shows from Germany and China met some rainy weather at the Fort Bonifacio grounds causing it to be delayed. Albeit the show went on a little bit later, the fireworks was still spectacular. It might have been better though if there were less clouds.

“Due to safety considerations in the firing site, the WPO executive committee decided to reschedule [it]...in January next year,” says Arriane Dizon, World Wide Womb for WPO Marketing Assistant.
Four more shows are supposedly scheduled for the next 4 weeks.
  • Nov 21 - Germany & China
  • Nov 28 - Canada & Australia
  • Dec 05 - Japan & Italy
  • Dec 12 - South Korea & USA
  • Dec 19 - Fellowship of Fire from the Philippines
"The incessant rains...have rendered the firing area almost unfit for pyrotechnics launching which have certain standards to observe. The participating countries have thus greed to postpone the event."
Ticket holders with inquiries can call their hotlines 568-6908 and 384-0239 or check out their website (quote source) here. Stay tuned for the final schedule of the World Pyro Olympics 2009.
