A little freebie from me...

It was our annual Musical Fireworks Championship this last weekend and although Sunday nights entries were cancelled due to strong winds (the first time ever in 11 years) we had a wonderful time watching the 5 entries that did manage to display.

Its my absolute favorite event in Southport for the year and we are lucky enough to have quite a few great events here. Last years winners were Jubilee and to say they were awesome is an understatement. The competitors have to produce a display lasting between 15 and 20 minutes and are judged on timing to the music and artistic interpretation.

This year it was Flashpoint Fireworks who won. ( I didn't catch the name of the team I thought were the best and no ones uploaded a video of them so I don't know if it was these but they were as good as Jubilee last year) Since there's no video of my fav this year I'm showing you last years winners. Sorry about the video but it was the only one I could find that included the music and it is, after all, the 'Musical' Fireworks championship so I think the music is pretty important. Anyway, it gives you an idea of just how great these displays are. It comes in 2 parts and be sure to have your speakers on so you can hear the fantastic music too.

To mark this favorite event I made a little giftie for you all. I hope you can make use of them. You can grab them here.
Password is southport.

First of all, thank you so much for the wonderful papers!
I had never had a clue that there was a musical fireworks competition anywhere ... how wonderful it must be to attend! I love fireworks, and music is essential to me as breathing :-). When the Enya part of the music started, I melted inside :-)! Wonderful, wonderful. Thank you for sharing this!!!!!!

We went to see fireworks in St. Augustine, Florida a few years ago for the city's birthday weekend and got Hot Ashes on us from across the intercoastal waterway because of the wind. Definitely different than any other fireworks display I have witnessed. I need to watch your video now!

I was thinking you would have an Add-On to the SAS CC but this is even better :) Thank You Very Much!
