Marikina City staged its annual year end concert and fireworks display ahead of the New Year’s Eve revelry.

As of 7 p.m., Marikina City Police estimated that the crowd at the Marikina Sports Center, the venue of this year’s free concert, was at around 22,000 people.

Marikina City Mayor Marcelino Teodoro urged Marikeños to be part of the city’s community fireworks display and free concert instead of using dangerous firecrackers during their New Year’s Eve celebration.

“The yearend concert and fireworks display serves as a venue for all residents of Marikina to have a good time and enjoy together with their families, friends and their community. That is what the goal really is,” Teodoro said in an earlier statement.

Some of the country’s top bands—December Avenue, IV of Spades, and This Band—were some of the featured performers at the free concert, along with local talents from Marikina. A15-minute pyromusical display capped this year’s event.

Last year, the city government estimated that around 70,000 people watched the free concert and fireworks display.

“This has become a tradition for Marikeños to watch the concert and fireworks display yearly. Not only residents of Marikina but also people from nearby cities such as Quezon City, Pasig City, and Rizal have come every year to watch the concert and the fireworks,” Teodoro said.

To ensure the safety of the revelers, personnel from the Marikina Police were deployed inside and outside the venue. Members of Marikina City Rescue 161 were also stationed at the venue in case someone would need immediate medical attention.
