Buy fireworks will be fired form barges on the actual river and will start after the end of the carnival. Lasting ten minutes and starting at 9.45pm the best vantage point will be Victoria Embankment, Waterloo Bridge and Blackfriars Bridge.

Over 100,000 fireworks fired and 220,000 people gathered in Edinburgh’s city centre to experience the rapturous finale of the 3 week long cultural celebrations. The organisers obviously read the monster Blog and made sure they fired at least 100,007 fireworks taking no chances!
Congratulations to Pyrovision for a remarkable display. Excerpts from Music for the Royal Fireworks began as traditional waterfall fireworks cascaded down the sides of Edinburgh’s Castle. The 45-minute concert came to a dramatic climax as the Hallelujah Chorus played to rapid sequences of gold and silver fireworks spiraled above the castle.

Let’s wish Edinburgh the best of luck for this weekend as their display will be featuring another round of 100,000 fireworks.

Firecrackers are traditionally used in China to ward off evil spirits. They were originally made from bamboo filled with gunpowder. They are strung together in their hundreds on long string. Firecrackers are usually coloured red as this is believed to be a lucky colour. Once lit, the firecrackers give large bangs and crackles and the explosion goes along each firecracker in the string. Traditional firecrackers are not available in the UK but we are pleased to announce a similar alternative. The crackling snake from Fireworks International is available in our Bristol Shop only (sorry no shipping as yet) and offers an exciting alternative to the fire cracker.
