CLARK FREEPORT -- Some 7,000 people flocked to this year’s Philippine International Pyromusical Competition (PIPC) at SM City Clark.

SM City Clark Public Relations manager Venus Manalang said that opening day exhibitions between the Philippines and Belgium was met by a strong crowd of spectators who trooped to the mall as early as 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 23.

On the opening day, Platinum Fireworks Inc. took to the sky to open the festivity together with an amazing drone exhibition. As the first contender, CBF Pyrotechnics from Belgium also presented their pyrotechnic delights.

On March 2, Germany’s ninth PIPC champs “Steffes-Ollig Feuerwerke” and Portugal’s “Pirotecnia Minhota” will treat the crowd with their tradition and mastery of skills in the sky.

On March 9, the Pampanga skyline will witness France’s “Brezac Artifices” followed by a burst of vibrant colors by Finland’s OyPyroman.

Italy’s very own “Viviano S.R.L.” and last year’s champion, United Kingdom’s “PyrotexFireworx” will battle it out on March 16.

Canada’s turn to paint the night sky bursting with colors on March 23 with their very own “Fireworks Spectaculars” and China’s Polaris Fireworks will surely stun the crowds.

To cap off the competition and close a decade of giving the best pyromusical exhibition in the Philippines, March 30 promises the most spectacular display of colors and surprises with Poland’s Surex Firma Rodzinna and the Philippines’ own Platinum Fireworks Inc. in a grand finale like no other.
