Today is a new era for the World Pyro Olympics as it moves from Mall of Asia to Bonifacio Global City. The entire area that you see above is part of the viewing area. I am excited to watch the opening night of World Pyro Olympics with China and Germany. (I heard China will have a “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” musical score.)
I’m also running a WPO Twitter Contest — get a chance to win a VIP Ticket (worth P1,500) for tonight’s show!
Relate Post: Top 5 Things You Must Know Before Watching World Pyro Olympics 2009
As I was running this morning, I took the chance to capture the early morning preparations for the World Pyro Olympics.
The flags of all the participating countries were already hoisted up in front of the firing zone.
The VIP Area is near 32nd Street, across MC Home Depot.
It would not be a good idea to wear high heels on this kind of terrain. Wear comfortable shoes.
The Friday’s Group of Restaurants, including Flap Jacks and Fish & Co, is serving dinner tonight… I heard Via Mare is also serving food in the VIP section.
Parking and the streets near the viewing area are all closed.
Mexicali and other food concessionaires are setting up in the General Viewing Area.
Portable toilets are available around the General Viewing area but you can also use the toilets in Boni High Street.
People literally camped out in front of the Nike Fort flagship store to buy the Nike Limited Edition Trainer 1 Low to commemorate Pacquio’s win over Cotto.
Here is a photo of the limited edition Pacquiao Nike Shoes in Red, Blue, White Philippine Flag colors for P5,955. (Info from Jayvee’s A Bugged Life)
Apparently, the Boni High Street area is all boarded up so that you cannot see the World Pyro Olympics from that area.
The Friday’s area is also boarded up but you can still see the fireworks high above the sky. But it would be good to see the low level fireworks too, though.
The view from Kirin is also blocked by a huge World Pyro Olympics wall. I bet the organizers ensured that the music won’t be heard as well from the Boni High Street Area.
Here is the view from the other side of the wall. The organizers are making sure that you should at least buy the entrance tickets.
World Pyro Olympics will be selling tickets onsite beginning 10am today. Ticket booths can be located at all corners of the event site. Rain or shine, the firing will proceed. Buy Your Tickets Now!!!
