Yeah, we had one of those in the recent weeks. It was a competition even.
I bought tickets for me, some friends and a boy to go see this. Needless to say, the boy and I fizzled out even before this day came. Friends came through as always.
So one hot and sweaty evening, kids of all ages gathered at Manila Bay to go see these things go boom! Cameras and tripods took over the usually empty seawall, bodies squeezed in or sat themselves on the pavement while vendors celebrated the smell of a massive sell.
We clapped and oohhed and aahhed and high fived the stranger next to us at every eruption above us. What is it about fireworks that brings out the kids in us anyway?
