Preparations underway for Burnham-On-Sea's seafront fireworks
Work was underway on Saturday on constructing the scaffolding
structure from which Burnham-On-Sea's seafront fireworks display
will be fired into the sky on Sunday night (November 7th).
Hundreds of dazzling fireworks will be fired from the temporary
platform, which will be surrounded by sea water.
20 minute display, which starts at 7pm, will include several brand
new fireworks never seen before in Burnham - as reported here.
Lee Harvey, from Skyburst, the company that is running the event
on behalf of the Town Council, told Burnham-On-Sea.com that the
display promises to be "breathtaking".
The whole event is weather dependent and, with the threat of
windy conditions a possibility, Burnham-On-Sea.com will have further
updates during Sunday.
The hugely popular free event, which is often attended by thousands
of spectators, is
being held on the night before Burnham's annual carnival.
After the fireworks on Sunday night, The Railway Inn in Burnham
High Street will be holding a fundraising concert in which local
group The Riverbrew will be playing to raise cash for Help For
Landlord Danny Pearce, pictured, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We
hope to raise a good sum for the charity while keeping the fireworks
fun running into the evening."
