The World Pyro Olympics is an annual competition amongst the most prestigious fireworks companies in the world. The event is the largest and most intense international fireworks competition.
The World Pyro Olympics runs through a period of five consecutive days allowing locals and tourists alike to experience the greatest fireworks display in the world. Two countries fire each day; the last participant fires on the final evening of the event.
The host of the event does not participate in the competition but performs a fireworks display on the last night. Awards, such as the People’s Choice, are given out after the exhibition. The crowning of the World Pyro Olympics Champion ends the event.
