Fireworks in South Shields

Fireworks, South Shields

Guy Fawkes display

The annual Guy Fawkes fireworks display took place behind the skateboard park on Sandhaven Beach, South Shields last night, when thousands of spectators thronged the beach and the sea front area to witness a spectacular display. The event was held early so that schoolchildren could enjoy it on the last evening of their half term holiday, as well as the firework display there was other live entertainment and the Ocean Beach Pleasure park was also open until 10:00 pm.

Unfortunately the funfair owners and operators did not benefit greatly, as crowds came out to enjoy the free entertainment but were releuctant to spend money, ride operators and stall holders were forced to give away hundreds of finger buns, burger buns, frozen burgers, candy floss and toffee apples to their staff having over catered for the event.

Another victim of the credit crunch.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 82mm lens, 4 seconds, f9.5, iso 800, Velbon tripod.


I enjoyed it so much, I made another slide show to share with you.
