Bonfire Night: Scotland

Pop. Pop. Kipow. Screeeaaachhhh! Pop. Pop. Poppoppopopopopop. Pop……..

The crowd woops and cheers as the announcer jumps to his mike and shouts out a send off. As the crowd thins I gaze over at the empty sky. Something was different about these fireworks. What was it?

IT WAS THE THEME MUSIC.

Oh wow. I’ve seen many pyrotechnic shows over the years, but apparently none with a playlist—until now. I can’t even begin to describe the thrill a thumpin’ melody adds to the dazzling sight of fireworks exploding across the sky.

And I got to experience 23 MINUTES of this!

This year they featured a James Bond theme (and apparently, according to my new friend, this was the theme last year too lol).

2015 Guy Fawkes-3

Anyway, I’ll stop yapping so you can click start on the playlist below and begin exploring these photos!

If you’d prefer a more traditional view of the fireworks (which are just as spectacular) and a rundown of the history of Guy Fawkes/Bonfire/Firework Night please click here.
