River Of Light 2017

ON 5 November 2017, The River of Light fireworks festival lit up the Mersey and Mersey Estuary for the 2nd year running. This year conditions, on what is one of the most exciting nights of the year were near to perfect for fireworks and the world renowned fireworks team, Titanium Fireworks did not disappoint. We decided this year not to go into the City Centre, but to watch the River Of Light display from Crosby Beach instead. As the nation celebrated the failure of Guy Fawkes's 'Gunpowder Plot,' it was interesting to see the coastline, from Wales to Hightown, light up with flashes and sparks as we awaited the display to start on the River Mersey. Our main view was of the display being fired from Fort Perch Rock which is a former defence installation that contains a museum. It is situated in Liverpool Bay, at New Brighton, along with the Mersey's only Lighthouse. These are a few photos we took of the display and also you can watch some if it, on our YouTube Channel. If you attended, please let us know what you thought of the event. Also if you have any photos from it, please do post them on our Facebook Page...
