2012 Seoul International Fireworks Festival

Last weekend, we went to Yeouido Park for the 7th annual Seoul International Fireworks Festival. This was actually a competition between four different countries: Italy, China, USA and Korea. Each country was given 20 minutes to perform their fireworks display. They each had a theme with music.  It was very neat to see and we had fairly good seats.

Italy was first with a theme called Love. The music consisted of several Opera songs. Here are some photos from their display:

 The next performance was from China. Their theme was called "The River." Here is a song from that display:

Next up was the US with a selection of musicals with a title of "Music of the Night." Musicals included: Chicago, The King and I, Oklahoma, Cats, West Side Story, and The Phantom of the Opera. Here is some of that: (Sorry in advance, you can hear me singing some in the background). 

Finally, was the Korean team. Their theme was: The 10th WoW. The performed a lot of US songs and also a few songs from Korea. Here is one of their songs.

Great performance by all! Personally we like the US the best, but we're a bit biased. :) There were also a lot of people at this event as well and our hats go off to the security for how well the helped everyone get out and into the subways or wherever we needed to go.
