    Hi all.

    I wrote to this lady, Kelly Tan (Project Manager, Marketing Communications), of the Esplanade Co Ltd. And her reply was as follow:

    "The pyrotechnics will commence from 10:15pm to 10.45pm on the day of our Grand Opening (12 Oct 2002), as part of the programme of the Habour Spectacular."

    But she didn't mention anything about the location of the firework, and how high it will go. So it is up to us to figure out the rest. Hope my input is useful.

    Hope i can meet you guys on that day. I had always wanted to join as a group.

    So how to identify the group?

    Sounds like a secret society gathering. But no worries. I am not too good either :P

    Latest info, I just got it from a friend working for the festival. The fireworks will not last for 30 minute but it will be part of the 30 minute of the Official Opening Ceremony between 10.15pm-10.45pm. The fireworks will be firing off from everywhere, but not on the roof, mostly from the river. So anywhere from the waterfront, along the bridge, stretching to One Fullerton will be packed with pyro display! Don't miss it!

    Any details on what's happening where? I saw a rehearsal at the main entrance (facing the padang area) yesterday which look pretty interesting. But watching/shooting that means missing out on all the waterfront fun.

    There're searchlights on top of fullerton yesterday also.

    The opening performance is a massive display with different activities happening everywhere at the same time! It's hard to capture everything. Like I said, for those who want to catch the firework, you can station yourself anywhere near, from the waterfront to the Merlion will be the best, as tonnes of fireworks are firing from the sea(river). And of course it would be worthwhile to be there early and catch the colourful performances the Esplanade offers. Gosh.. I sounded like working for them..

    thanks for the new info! Almost seems as though we might be like paparazzi swarming the place!

    I'll be going around on foot for the earlier part of the night to catch closeups, although this might mean that I'll forgo a good place to shoot fireworks.

    Hey, the performance at the main entrance does look pretty interesting. I ran into it yesterday and caught them on my coolpix.
