Wellington City – Fireworks

It was Guy Fawkes Day on Thursday, and on Saturday the Wellington City Council put on their annual Sky Show Fireworks display*

Phillip and I headed down an hour early so we could get a decent spot. This year, we sat on the City to Sea Bridge; I think we ended up with a pretty good view. The only downside was that it was freezing; I really should have taken a jacket, I spent good deal of time bemoaning the fact I should have brought a coat with me. In the end, the show was kind of worth freezing my ass off for and I had a great time.

I took some photos, and thought I’d share my favourite ones with you.

*As a child, I always wondered why we were celebrating someone trying to blow up parliament – turns out we’re celebrating the failure/King James’s escape from assassination.

What did you do for Guy Fawkes night? Does your city/town put on a firework display?
