'Breathtaking' Burnham-On-Sea fireworks display this Sunday
of Burnham-On-Sea's seafront fireworks display, which is being
held this Sunday (November 7th), say spectators are in for a treat.
The 20 minute display, which starts at 7pm, will include several
brand new fireworks never seen before in Burnham.
Harvey, from Skyburst, the company that is running the event on
behalf of the Town Council, told Burnham-On-Sea.com that the event
promises to be "breathtaking".
explained: "It will be a stunning display - we've added several
brand new water effects fireworks to the show this year, which
will be fired into the sea. It will be the first time these have
been used in Burnham."
He added that the programme of classical, pop and film music
will also accompany the dazzling fireworks, which will be fired
from a scaffolding platform surrounded by sea water on the jetty.
The event will be free of charge, but the Rotary Club will be
collecting during the evening for local charities and organisations.
The display is being funded by the Town Council with the financial
support of several local businesses, including Central Radio Services,
Laburnum House, Highbridge Caravans, Beachside Holiday Park, Retreat
Caravan Park, Unity Farm and Newcombe Caravan Park.
Access onto Burnham jetty will be closed throughout the weekend
to allow the scaffolding structure to be built.
The hugely popular annual event, which is often attended by thousands
of spectators, is
held on the night before Burnham's annual winter carnival.
