A Look Back at the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony

We’ve been so excited over the last week or so focusing on our Firework Champions performance – you can check out our winning performance at Belvoir Castle on our Facebook page as it happened or view the professionally shot video here – that we’d almost forgot about the global carnival currently taking place in Rio.
The Olympic Games kicked off to much fanfare last Friday, and as always on such occasions we’ve been to find the best videos of the stunning fireworks displays that marked the opening ceremony.
We’ll be back with a follow up in a few weeks with the best videos from the closing ceremony, which we’re sure will be just as big a celebration and give us plenty of other opportunities to highlight some amazing fireworks in all their glory.

Olympic Games Opening Ceremony Videos

Check out the below three great videos from Rio last Friday evening.

The Best Opening Ceremonies Ever?

While choosing the videos to display here we also came across the below video highlighting the 10 Best Opening Ceremonies of all time. The only fireworks you’ll see are stills unfortunately, but if you’re into your Olympic history it’s a fun watch all the same.

Happy New Year from Rio

If you’ve watched the above Top 10 Best Opening Ceremonies of all time video and want more fireworks, then rest assured we have them. Rio welcomed their Olympic year on New Year’s Eve with a stunning display when the clocks hit midnight.
The video below showcases the very best of the display.
