Fireworks Bring Touch Of Colour To Scottish Village

Firework Display - Hogmanay Street Party, Dornoch, Scotland

THE sky over an Aberdeenshire village was lit up with colour in an annual fireworks celebration designed to dispel the January blues.

Around 1,500 people gathered for the 10th annual fireworks festival at Johnshaven harbour last night.

The celebrations are organised and funded by local residents who are keen to bring some festivity into one of the least eventful months of the year.

The fireworks were due to be held on January 10 but had to be postponed due to the severe weather conditions.

Bobbie Still, owner of The Ship Inn, helps to organise the event and says residents were determined that the heavy snow would not stop the festivities.

“This is our 10th year,” she said. “It was started on the millennium with a few fireworks.

“The village wanted to carry on the tradition.

“I think everybody likes fireworks. It’s really good.”

People from as far afield as Inverurie gather at the village harbour every year for the popular event.

A barbecue was provided for visitors before local fire dancers Fire Poise performed for spectators at the harbour yesterday.

Officials from Fireworks Scotland set off the colourful display before Chinese lanterns were lit, in a new addition to the event.
