Not your average firework displays…hold onto your seat, and turn your sound down a little, this is mega LOUD!!
I’d fully recommend watching between 4.40-5.10 min. Wow!! The close proximity to the crowd would be completely illegal were I live. Awesome fun for those who love to take those kind of risks. I’m so grateful I’m watching it on screen!!!
