2014 More FM Fireworks Spectacular

2014 More FM Fireworks Spectacular

Tuesday, September 23, 2014

They get bigger and better every year - and the only difference this year will be that it’s two weeks earlier than usual.

South Taranaki, get set for some serious pyrotechnic explosions when the More FM Fireworks Spectacular takes place on Saturday 11 October at the Egmont A & P Show Grounds in Hawera. The change of date is so it doesn’t clash with other rather large outdoor events.

Local band Ghost Chips will be performing from 7pm until the fireworks start. Bouncy castles, face painting, 10d mobile cinema, mini ferris wheel, glow sticks and other glowing products will be on offer for the youngsters and the young at heart.  There will be a variety of food stalls to purchase from such as pizza, kebabs, bbq, coffee, donuts and ice cream or families are welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy the great night out.

Once again, Van Tiel Pyrotechnics has designed an explosive display. Van Tiel Pyrotechnics staged New Zealand’s largest ever display for the Auckland Millennium celebrations, they were also the company responsible for the fireworks at the open of the Rugby World Cup.

“Last year we had over 3000 people attend and it was a great night” says event co-ordinator Jody Bloor. “ We encourage all of Taranaki to come and share this evening of fun with us! It is going to be an awesome, safe family night out and a great way to finish the school holidays!”

Entry to the Show Grounds for the evening is just $5 for adults, $2 for children or $10 for a family (2 adults 3 children).  Car parking is available at TSB Hub and entry to the Show Grounds will be from Burnside Avenue and Williams Avenue.

Gates open at 6.30pm.

Residents are reminded to keep pets and animals safe during the evening.  As with every year around Guy Fawke’s time, animals can easily get spooked.
