On 5 September, the International Fireworks Competition had an exotic touch, when the Philippine team Dragon Fireworks showed what it can do.
Dragon Fireworks was the first state-approved producer of pyrotechnic products in the Philippines and is now one of the largest fireworks manufacturers in South-East Asia. Because Philippine fireworks laws prohibit the import of fireworks, the pyrotechnic specialists learned how to create all kinds of fireworks themselves. Dragon Fireworks performed ground-breaking work with enormous skill, creativity and technical competence, producing magnificent and highly distinctive fireworks.
The first-class, individual material is also one of the reasons for the success of the Philippine fireworks artists: in 2004, for example, the pyrotechnicians won the Philippine National Fireworks Competition and opened the 23rd Southeast Asian Games in 2005. The team has also won a number of respected national prizes. Dragon Fireworks has repeatedly been commended for its high quality and excellent pyrotechnic production, attributes which are also sure to appeal to visitors to the International Fireworks Competition.
