Fireworks show organizers eye three world records

1

New world records for the Philippines to welcome the new year.

This is the objective of a grand fireworks display that seeks to beat three current records in the Guinness Book of World Records.

To be held in Ciudad de Victoria, the home of the Philippine Arena, the fireworks display is part of an annual two-day New Year’s Eve event that will feature concerts by internationally acclaimed artists Arnel Pineda and Apl.De.Ap at the Great Stairs at the Philippine Arena, as well as various local talents at the Philippine Stadium.

Organizers say representatives from Guinness will be present to confirm breaking of the three records: largest fireworks display, longest line of sparklers lit in relay and most sparklers lit simultaneously.


According to GP Santos, Maligaya Development Corp. chief operating Officer, the public is invited to attend the once-in-a-lifetime event that will start on December 30.

“Aside from wanting to win new distinctions for our country, we also want to provide an alternative to celebrating the new year other than the usual personal use of firecrackers and the indiscriminate firing of guns, both of which often lead to serious injuries and, in some cases, tragic accidental deaths,” Santos said.

“This event will not only make celebrating the new year safer for our people, it will also allow them to witness and to be part of history,” he added.

Aside from the fireworks display and the concerts, families will also enjoy the other activities and attractions at the venue, such as a mini zoo, carnival rides, inflatables, amusement games, magic shows, a laser lights show, a kite show, mascots, parades and a bazaar.

  1. HOW CAN A RELIGIOUS GROUP CLAIMING TO BE A Christian PARTICIPATE IN AN OCCASION THAT IS OF PAGAN NATURE. TRULY, A TREE COULD BE DETERMINED BY ITS FRUITS.

    Simula nang naging Executive Minister etong si Eddie Boy at umupo ang mga mandarambong na ministro sa Sanggunian, puro labas ng pondo ang nangyayari. Tutoong maraming kapilya ang hindi makapagpatuloy ng construction at kung anu-ano pang mga dapat gastusin pero di aaminin nila iyan. Hindi nga inaamin na benta dito benta roon ng mga properties. Ang tanging sagot ng mga siraulong iyan ay wala daw ebidensiya samantalang nasa public records ang bentahan at certificate. May isa pang uulol na nagsabing galing daw sa Recto ang mga dokumento. Isang dahilan kung bakit ganoon na lang kadali maglabas ng pondo ay dahil ang mismong naglulustay ay ang church auditor na isa sa mga sangkot sa corruption. Siya din ang utak ng mga Guinness World Records. Sino ang pipigil sa kanya? Si Eddie Boy eh hawak yata sa bayagg siya nitong Glicerio Santos Jr.

    Etong si Bro. New Guinness World Record na si Santos na unang sangkot sa corruption sa INC wala nang inatupag kundi Guinnes ng Guinness. Saan naman galing ang malaking gastos kundi mula sa mga handog ng mga kawawang nilolokong kaanib. Katatapos lang ng Pasasalamat at eto na naman walang kabuluhan na paglustay ng pera para lang magyabang.

    To get the World Record, huge amount of money is needed like the other countries that set the records previously. They spent dollars. If we convert the current high dollars to pesos, you can imagine how much INC is spending for this stupid ego trip. However, INC could easily buy fireworks from China which is cheaper. The risk is getting fake fireworks…good for fake church.
