Friday, October 25, 2013

They get bigger and better every year - and this year is going to be no exception.

South Taranaki, get set for some serious pyrotechnic explosions when the More FM Fireworks Spectacular takes place on Saturday 26 October at the Egmont A & P Show Grounds in Hawera.

Local band Kingtide will be performing from 7pm until the fireworks start. Bouncy castles, face painting, glitter art, glow sticks and other glowing products will be on offer for the youngsters and the young at heart.  Food will also be available to buy or families are welcome to bring a picnic and enjoy the great night out.

Once again, Van Tiel Pyrotechnics has designed an explosive display choreographed to music. 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. “With New Plymouth not having their display this year, the show grounds could be bursting at the seams! It is going to be an awesome, safe family night out!”

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.
