Thousands of people joined a brilliant Bonfire Night party in York last night (Saturday).
The annual Fire Fighters Charity fireworks at Rawcliffe Country Park was another dazzling success.
Families flocked to the event, which included a funfair and a large array of food and drink stalls.
Although the heavens opened a couple of hours before the event, the night was dry and illuminated by a near full moon.
On the live stage, hosted by YorkMix Radio, live music got the party started, as Yorkshire band What Katie Did Next rocked the park.
After the bonfire was lit, Ben Fry and Laura Castle from the YorkMix Radio Breakfast Show took to the stage. They introduced the Malton Fire Cadets and then hosted a series of competitions, giving away goodies including some very popular torch keyrings.
Then the countdown began to a spectacular firework display.
The event was raising funds for the Fire Fighters Charity, after last year’s fireworks night raised a record £56,000.
There were many great fireworks and bonfires across North Yorkshire.
There was a brilliant turnout at the Selby Community Bonfire and Fireworks at Scott Road Community Field.
Hosted by Victoria Charles of YorkMix Radio, the event featured funfair rides and a hog roast, among other Bonfire Night treats.
There was live music, food and drink at the Boatyard Bonfire Night in Bishopthorpe.
And another dazzling fireworks display was held at the Poppleton Centre in York.
North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service reported a busy night, with lots of callers spotting fires. Thankfully, these were mostly controlled bonfires.
They live tweeted the night with the hashtag #NYFRSBonfireNight.
