Back in May, we brought you news of the annual Herrenhausen International Fireworks competition, held annually on 5 Saturdays between May and September and it brings together top teams from Italy, Spain, Finland, Sweden and the Philippines to fight it out for this International title.
The competition is judged by a jury of 10 independent pyro experts. The displays lasted approximately 25 minutes and included a 4 minute compulsory section which all the teams had to include and the remaining choreographed display can be to any selection of music. They also have to use a minimum of ground elements but apart from that, the skies the limit! (no pun intended … honest!)
The final results were:
1st Goteborgs Fyrverkeri Fabrik – Sweden
2nd Dragon Fireworks – Philippines
3rd Ricardo Cabballer Ricassa
Being straight, I still had Pyroemotions from Italy as the front-runner as their display really was (imho) a truly beautiful show, but, each to their own and warmest congratulations to all the competitors who took part.
