A Sparkling Display

Fans of bright lights, loud bangs and the smell of gunpowder have been spoilt for choice at this years bonfire celebrations.
A giant, tiered birthday cake featuring themes from past years including Dracula, Vikings, Harry Potter and the Wizard of Oz was the central feature of Skinningrove village's spectacular 25th anniversary bonfire celebrations which took place on Saturday 4th November.
Following on from Skinningrove's annual firework display, Redcar and Cleveland Council’s annual Fireworks Night switched on for a sparkling display on Sunday, November 5th on Redcar Stray.
Starting at 6.30pm the 30-minute extravaganza, between Redcar and Marske, meant that the Coast Road was closed to traffic from 5.30pm until about half an hour after the spectacular display. Organisers set off the fireworks from the grassed area on the Stray, firing over the sea. The finale saw fireworks rising up to 1,500 feet in the air and spreading 1,200 feet wide.
Meanwhile Saltburn's own event, held at the Cricket Club, continued to be a major attraction for the town, with the addition of a fair on the car park in front of the leisure centre.
