The Philippine SEA Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC) tapped Platinum Fireworks Inc. to bring the opening and closing fireworks for the Southeast Asian Games. PHISGOC said that it will be the grandest and most spectacular fireworks in the history of SEA Games.
Up next for the PHISGOC is the discussion on plans for the November 30 opening ceremony in the Philippine Arena in Bocaue, Bulacan.
The organizing committee is looking to tap singers Lea Salonga and Arnel Pineda to open the regional meet, while apl.de.ap, the Filipino member of theThe Black Eyed Peas, is slated to take the stage during the closing ceremonies.
“This is the first time that the opening ceremonies will be done indoors [and done digitally],” added Suzara.
Aside from the program, there is a need to discuss the logistics of the event with the Department of Transportation (DOTr) as the PHISGOC looks to ease the traffic by closing NLEX for public use 12 hours before the start of the event.
There will be buses provided for the public, as the PHISGOC is aiming to buy 362 buses, 162 sedans and 100 VIP cars while renting 268 vans for the use of the entire games.
