World Firework Championships Australia 09/09/2016
« on: September 10, 2016, 08:04:17 PM »
In torrid conditions, Australia opened the yearly ' World Championship ' of Fireworks here in Blackpool.. :thumbup1:

It was nearly a non starter as the weather conditions of wind and rain nearly forced the cancellation of the opening round..

It took a single firework that was launched 10 minutes before the official announcement for the judges to decide if it was safe for a public display to take place..

The announcement came over the loud speaker system that it would be going ahead,much to the excitement of the many thousands of people that had lined the wind swept Blackpool Promenade.. :tongue_smilie:

So the countdown begins and then the speaker seems to fail next to me, I was absolutely gutted..
But at least the fireworks had started.. :thumbup1:

The music returns to a fashion with a rendition of diamonds by Rihanna... :tongue_smilie:


All these fireworks have names, but to be honest I haven't a clue what they are called, but they are very pretty.. :tongue:


They were loud and bright, the Australians will take some beating after this..

Thank you for reading...
