It’s almost Guy Fawkes; a time when the sky is filled with flashes of colour, and the air is tinged with an acrid smell of smoke.
Yes, “remember, remember the fifth of November” because that’s the night Wellington has its annual Pelorus Trust Sky Show. Wotzon has an excellent article detailing the event, giving you the low-down on the best vantage points from which to view this fireworks spectacular.
If you are having your own fireworks, please remember to be safety conscious and considerate of your neighbours and animals. So once the evening gets on a bit, why not put them fireworks away, move yourselves indoors, and pull out a DVD – “V For Vendetta” might be very appropriate.
