Whether you think of it as Bonfire Night or Guy Fawkes this great British annual celebration traditionally held on 5th November is responsible for many a childhood memory. The magical display that took place in Perth last Sunday at the South Inch was bound to create some lasting memories for the children in attendance.
The town centre was absolutely buzzing with excitement as families grabbed a spot on the South Inch for a great night of entertainment. The festivities included, of course, the excellent display but there was also great live music and all the fun of the fair with thrilling rides, sideshows and even cotton candy. If candy-floss wasn't your thing then there was plenty of other delicious food and hot and cold drinks to choose from.
As anyone who has tried to stage a fireworks display in their own garden (guilty I'm afraid) sometimes things are best left to the professionals! These days public Firework displays are creative displays of pyrotechnic genius, planned and thought out months in advance. As always the event was completely free of charge and organised by the awesome at folks Perth Strathearn 200 roundtable, although they did take donations and people gave very generously. They did a great job, it was a really world-class display and everything ran like clock-work.
