Haven't decided yet - it al depends on the weather.

I'll be there later on tonight for the night run and the fire works. Not doing the whole day this year as it's a very long day, especially as I think I've pretty much read everything there is to read there :D :))
So we'll be the ones at the back of the car park :)) :))

Debating whether to take my cameras with me, neither works very well in the dark :)) ~x( and my poor Canon doesn't work very well as it is so any rain might kill it :)) So there may or may not be any thing from me.

But here's some of last years amazing fireworks display for anyone who's interested. Possibly one of the best displays I have ever been too.



That was taken with my canon and took 14 hours to upload to YouTube :-o :))

EK is one of the best firework displays I ever seen. Arriving late isn't a problem Helen you end up parked near the exit as they fill up from the far end!

If you have I hope all went as planned.

We got there about half 6 and they were already prepping JJ. Taxi run was amazing (as always) just wish I could have seen more over all the tall people =)) =))

Small issue with the fire works, they started them and then the wind was blowing all the crap and embers over the crowd that had gathered up the other end where the radio cabin e.t.c. is, so they decided to halt things and move everyone to the chicken shed hard standing.
But once it was restarted it was just as good as last year :ymapplause: :ymapplause: Although mum got something in her eye and I had to put out a small fire with my bottle of water =))


The rain stayed away :ymapplause: but it wasn't half windy, but not too cold (IMO).
I didn't take many photos, mainly as I couldn't see :))
