Gallery - MatarikiFireworks2017

Something that the local council has been promoting more of late is the idea of marking Matariki. This is the Maori new year which is marked by the Pleides constellation coming into the sky to the north. It is a very recognisable configuration and occurs in the middle of winter for us. So on June 24th we had a fireworks display to mark the occasion.

Now I am always a sucker for a good fireworks display and this one didn't disappoint. It was a smaller display lasting about ten minutes but it was launched close to the waterfront and was well organised. Here are some shots from the display.
