The Philippines poured it all in a 20-minute grand fireworks display at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City on Sunday in a fitting finale to the 6-week 9th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition.

The spectators who poured into the bayside mall were not disappointed as the Philippine side, performing in an exhibition and not part of the competition, had the crowd mesmerized.

The Chinese team emerged as 1st runner-up, while Germany and the United Kingdom were tied as champions. 

The competition was also joined by teams from Austria, Canada, France, Italy, Romania, Switzerland and Taiwan.

China was the first to showcase its expertise on Saturday night.
