Ipswich Maritime Festival 2018 – Fireworks

This year they changed the way that the fireworks were to happen. Firstly, as a new thing, there were to be some fireworks during the day (??) and then the evening firework display moved to Saturday from Sunday.

Firstly, the daytime fireworks were OK. There were, as I understand it, mostly coloured powder. The idea seemed to be to fire it up and let it drift. Anyway, this is what it looked like.


It was OK but I understand that some of the coloured powder fell on some yachts. Nice Try.

The evening fireworks were as dramatic as ever. It is always worth seeing. A lot of money must go into setting it all up. People are starting to gather


Then, the big event starts. Watch the slideshow and then the video.
