We all attended the fireworks at Blackpool last night, launched from North pier they were the best we have ever seen. We walked in from Star Gate along the promenade and it was a great night out for all. We decided to watch from the beach which added to the fun as the kids played in the sea and sand while we waited for it to start. Stephie also played with the camera, hence the pictures! The kids had chips on the way home. A few more details can be found here:
