THE CITY with NO FIREWORKS and FIRECRAKERS

Davao City was the first city who passed an ordinance to ban FIRECRACKERS and FIREWORKS here in the Philippines since 2001.  This will be our 12th year celebrating NEW YEAR without a BIG BANG and BOOM.  Missing hearing that loud noise coming from JUDAS BELT(Sinturon ni Hudas), SUPER LOLO, SUPER PLA-PLA, JUMBO FOUNTAIN, WHISTLE BOMB, KUWITIS, BAWANG, BULALAKAW, and etc...But this is a great help to stop major injuries coming from these firecrackers and fireworks.  

Davao City had acquired the ZERO CASUALTIES both CHRISTMAS EVE and NEW YEARS.  

Davaoeños have found other ways to mark the event.  WE BLOW HORNS, BANG PANS, SHOUT LOUDER, MAKE OUR SOUND SYSTEM even more LOUDER, POLICE and FIRETRUCKS SIREN, CLANGING OF BELLS from our CHURCHES.  We called it here the DAVAO NOISE BARRAGE.

    1. Wow! Love to hear that sis. Hope all the cities here in the Philippines will follow Davao City. And continue to do it until all the cities will ban FIRECRACKERS and FIREWORKS.
