Manila: World Pyrolympics 2008 postponed again!

This was supposed to be my first time to watch the World Pyrolympics. I was sure people will be scrambling for tickets. And I also did not want to endure hours and hours of jammed up traffic or looking for a parking spot. Also imagine the crowds and the race to get a decent view of the fireworks display. No way! So I was all set to watch it on a dinner cruise around Manila Bay. But the World Pyrolympics 2008 was postponed again to May! And it sucks big time since it's the nth time they moved it! Since I'll be out in May, I'll have to wait until next year.

Here is the new schedule. The organizers said the dates are already sure since they will be selling tickets next week:
May 3 China and Germany
May 10 Japan and Canada
May 17 Italy and Venezuela
May 24 France and Korea
May 31 Australia and Philippines

    hi, i'm so looking forward to the world pyro cruise too, but do you happen to know where i could buy tickets. thanks

  2. We were going to cruise in a private yacht. I'll let you know the details when the Pyrolympics is really finalized. It's so hard to plan given their unpredictability. You can also check Prestige Cruises since they have daily cruises.

  3. Here are the details for the dinner cruise:

    Up Close. In Private. On a Yacht.

    Forget the hours and hours of jammed up traffic and fighting tooth and nail for a parking spot. Forget the crowd and the race to get at least a decent view of the fireworks display.

    This year, join us on a 4-hour cruise around Manila Bay and the best seats in the house are yours. No crowds. No commotion. No craziness. So you can just sit back, relax, put your feet up and enjoy the most spectacular international fireworks competition light up the sky.

    We can accommodate up to 20 people per trip. Price is P 1,800/head*, inclusive of dinner buffet and drinks.

    Assembly Time: 5:15 PM, Manila Yacht Club
    Departure: 5:45 PM
    Arrival: 10:00 PM, Manila Yacht Club

  9. Oo nga eh! But I asked someone to confirm with the owner himself. Yun na talaga dates. Yun na rin ang countries. But the order of countries may change though.
