Night Finish and Awards Ceremony.

What did you guys think of the light show spectacle? I liked it quite a bit. Really added some flair to the ceremony. I wouldn't mind more night finishes.

Yes, well done.
We were waiting for Purito's kids to drop a trophy or cause some kind of disaster. Glad it went without a hitch.

The Disco Eiffel Tower was a nice touch.

It is on every night!

But the ceremonies were grandiose and fitting!

The french call it "light and sound shows" or "son et lumière" they have been doing this kind of shows for many many years to show off their architectural treasures with great success! Although using lasers and computers is of course relatively new!
