You just gotta ignite the light

Bonfire Night is on Monday, strictly speaking, but most "official" bonfires are happening tonight. Sadly, there is no fire at Clitheroe Castle this year owing to some disagreement between the local council and the organisers. Its being blamed on over-zealous 'elf and safety'. So this meant we had to seek out an alternative.

Just up the road in Higham was the venue. Gosh it was a chilly evening. We got there just before they lit the fire and had to hang around for over an hour for the fireworks. It was also a bit of a quagmire as well - ended up ankle deep in mud at one point. Fortunately, there was a children's play area with a decent surface so we hung out there most of the time.

Highlight of the fireworks was the one that sent down lots of little parachutes which all the kids went mad to try and catch. Unusual!

Back home smelling like a bunch of kippers and straight into a lovely hot bath!
