Whenever grand celebrations hit our calendars, fireworks never lose track in topping the lists of what people expect to see. It is because coloring the sky requires potent skill and it is also a unique kind of entertainment.

In line with the celebration of the Sinulog Festival in Cebu, Pyroworks International hosted the third wave of Pyrofest. Eight entries competed to win the grand prize last January 15, 2011 outside The Northwing of SM City Cebu.

Party partey!

Captivating colors blasted out in the dark, silent sky of Cebu. Expressions like "Ohhs" and "Aaahhsss" were voiced-out by the spectators during the event as big explosions, in-tune with music, dramatically painted light in the dark. The event was closed with a fireworks demonstration conducted by Pyroworks International that astounded the crowd.
