The annual Crewe and Nantwich Lions ‘Bonfire & Fireworks Extravaganza’ took place on Tuesday 5th November 2019 at Queens Park in Crewe.
The park gates were opened at 5pm, the bonfire was lit at 7pm and the fireworks started shortly before 8pm.
The weather was dry and clear, and the crowd were treated to a ten-minute display involving several hundred candles, cakes and one-shot fireworks. The fireworks were supplied and choreographed by the multi award-winning Crewe-based firework company Blitz Fireworks. Music played in sync with the fireworks during the display included Disney’s ‘A Whole New World’ from Aladdin, ‘A Spoonful of Sugar’ from Mary Poppins and ‘Tale As Old As Time’ from Beauty and the Beast.
Local community radio station The Cat 107.9 FM kept visitors entertained throughout the event with a range of upbeat music.
The Friends of Queens Park sold sparklers to raise money for further projects and improvements within the park.
Refreshments were available in the Park Life Cafe and numerous stalls and there was also a funfair.
The Bonfire and Fireworks Display was enjoyed by thousands of people.
The event was organised by Crewe and Nantwich Lions Club. All funds raised are distributed by Crewe and Nantwich Lions Club to the local community and worldwide.
