Bonfire Night (5/11/08)

如常,Leeds City Council 都会花一笔钱在Leeds 6 个不同的地方庆祝这个节日。当然,每一年最大的庆典是在Roundhay Park。每年会有大概70,000 人到这里一起庆祝Bonfire Night。

去年我们是在Hyde Park 目睹和参与这一个节目。今年我们去了Roundhay Park,想体会一下不同的Bonfire Night。

当晚还有请歌手现场演唱。演唱是在6:30pm 开始,bonfire 是在7:30pm 正开始点燃,而烟花是在8:00pm 正开始燃烧。当晚的烟花燃烧了20 多分钟。

问题来了。。。因为人太多,大家都想一齐涌出去,结果我们在露天停车场等了大概1个钟,才能把车开到出口。人太多了,见识一次就够了,明年我还是回去Hyde Park 庆祝
好了!


Bonfire Night is also known as Guy Fawkers Night. It is an annual event celebrated on 5th November. Back in 5th Nov 1605, Guy Fawkers and a group of Catholic conspirators were alleged to be attempting to blow up House of Parliament in London. In order to remember this, British has celebrated it with bonfire.

Leeds City Council held Bonfire Night at six different places in Leeds every year. The biggest Bonfire Night is always at Roundhay Park, with 70,000 spectator each year.

This year, it started with a live concert at 6:30pm. Bonfire started at 7:30pm and fireworks started at 8pm sharp. The fireworks last for more than 20 minutes.


老早已经把一大堆木材堆在一起了,还堆了那么高!


开始点火了。。。



火开始燃烧,慢慢的从小火变大火。






即使是站在200公尺以外,还是会感觉到非常非常的闷热。



好热!脸烫烫的!



对我来说脸的部份是热了点,但因为当晚的天气很冷(大概9摄氏),

整体上还是感觉到很舒服的!








人山人海。。。
