    Fireworks

    Forgot to mention this earlier, but I thought the fireworks were excellent.

    If there is a Hograost 2013, might there be fireworks again please?

    i'm not a fan of fireworks but i thought the display was really good, except for the bit at the beginning that was like watching some bloke welding.

    I did like the fireworks but i must admit to having a giggle when the one missfired at the beginning, and all you could see were the guys with headtorches running away as quick as possible whilst the banger did its now unpredictable business
