Fire­works fun

The Arran Banner - - News -

Fire­work events were held round the is­land over the week­end to cel­e­brate Guy Fawkes Night.

The events started on Fri­day night in Lochranza where the Northend Fes­ti­val of Fire went ahead in spite of some strong winds spoil­ing some of the lighter fire­works lit at the cas­tle.

Big crowd

There was a big crowd out to watch the fire­works and en­joy 230 burg­ers and some re­fresh­ments while lis­ten­ing to the Ar­ran Pipe Band play­ing at the bon­fire.

Over in Lam­lash the bon­fire planned for Satur­day night had to be can­celled be­cause of the weather fore­cast, but went ahead on Sun­day with a huge bon­fire on the vil­lage green.

Also on Sun­day, Pirn­mill was the ben­e­fi­ciary of some of the un­used fire­works in Lochranza for its dis­play.

Mon­day rounded off the week­end with dis­plays and bon­fires in Brod­ick, Whit­ing Bay and Kil­do­nan.
