Bonfire Night Fireworks in Weymouth Bay
Bonfire Night fireworks have been a continuing tradition in Weymouth for many years. The bonfire was lit at 7:20pm. Aamazingly, next morning the remains were collected by Weymouth Council for reuse (as far as possible). The fireworks started at 7:45pm. The small pilot boat was the centre of about 15 minutes of fiery and sparkly mayhem as the fireworks lit up the clear night sky.
About 10,000 people on the Esplanade watched the display with many also enjoying the chips and drinks available from several stalls along the Esplanade. Many others watched from sea-facing rooms in their guesthouses. We filmed a few short clips from our front doorstep – overlooking the whole Bay and all the pyrotechnics. The massive bonfire itself was just 100 yards away along the Beach.
As in previous years, the event was free . It is just one of the host of great events to be seen from any of the lovely little sea front hotels and guesthouses on Weymouth’s Esplanade. (See https://www.whgla.org.uk for Guesthouse details)
