Bellingen residents and visitors came out in force to enjoy the Annual Fireworks Spectacular held on Saturday July 29 courtesy of Bellingen Lions Club - and again it was a huge success.
In its 30th year, the annual Fireworks Spectacular is a thank you to locals for supporting the many projects Bellingen Lions undertake throughout the district – most importantly the equipment donated to Bellingen Hospital.
Over $3700 worth of fireworks went off with a bang and lit up the sky over the showground with spectacular colour. Hundreds of kids, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, friends enjoyed a great night of fun. It was the best show by far.
Lion Catering Crew were kept busy supplying delicious food and drink, ably supported by the Lions Ladies and other “honorary Lions” on the night. Thank you to everyone who contributed.
The Monster Raffle with 60 prizes was a hit as usual. Congrats to all winners and a huge thank you to businesses and individuals that kindly donated the many prizes and to local businesses for their continued support in sponsoring this event each year.
All monies raised will fund local organisations in our district.
This is an annual event in Bellingen to thank the community for their continued support of Lions Club projects.
Many thanks also to Pyro technicians, BBQ and catering, Bellingen Showground Trust for the use of their facilities for the night and Bellingen SES for helping set up.
All in all it was a great night – another great community service Bellingen Lions Club provides for our town.
