Machynlleth Lantern Parade and Fireworks 2016

Saturday was a rare day with all of us at home with nothing really on the agenda. Morgan and I started it with an early morning walk in the dark. We went over to the beach, along the pebbles, through the dunes, up to the viewpoint, down to the visitor centre and then back home. I...

Machynlleth Lantern Parade – The Angry Angler Fish

After entering the Machynlleth Lantern Parade last year we had more ambitious plans this year. The theme was ‘Under the Sea’ so we decided on a lantern fish. Our inspiration was something like this. Suitably ‘fishy’ and suitably ‘halloweeny’ at the same time and with a lantern dangling in front of it as a lure,...

Machynlleth Fireworks

As part of our lantern pack for the Lantern Parade in Machynlleth we had a few free tickets for the fireworks. Those that didn’t have free tickets such as my parents bought tickets too as we usually pay to watch the fireworks afterwards as well. Not long after we entered the field and lined our...

Ynyslas Bonfire Party

A little late we know, but we Dave and Sarah hosted the Ynyslas Bonfire Party last night and everyone had fun. A nice big bonfire, plenty of fireworks, loads of food and lots of friendly locals to chat too. Another late night for Morgan following an even later night at the Aberystwyth and District Beekeepers...

Ynyslas Fireworks

There was great excitement in Ynyslas this weekend. There was actually something happening in our sleepy little back-water. Someone had organised a commercial ‘fireworks spectacular’ to take place on Saturday night at Ty Gwyn. As well as a fireworks display there was going to be a large bonfire, indoor laser show and of course drinks and refreshments to buy....

Machynlleth Lantern Parade and Fireworks 2011

Despite the weather we decided to go to the lantern parade and fireworks in Machynlleth over the weekend. I’d been to the Aberdovey Windsurf Demo during the day and hadn’t had much luck there with the weather as there wasn’t enough wind and as we left for the lantern parade it started raining. Once in...

Ynyslas Bonfire Party

Yes, another night and another bonfire party and fireworks display, that seems to be all we’ve done lately. Last night was the turn of the annual party at Dave and Sarah’s, our next door neighbours. As per usual it was full of their friends, most of whom are from Borth and Ynyslas and most of...

Aberystwyth Fireworks Display 0

Aberystwyth Fireworks

We had a busy night last night, but got to see the Aberystwyth Round Table fireworks. We didn’t pay to go in as we’d paid to see the Machynlleth fireworks display last weekend, it was pouring with rain and we have a bonfire party to go to tonight as well. So, we though we’d watch...

2010 Lantern 7

Machynlleth Lantern Parade & Fireworks 2010

It’s becoming a bit of an annual event for us, but we went to the Machynlleth Lantern Parade and Firework display again last night. It was pouring with rain when we left, but soon brightened up and we had lovely clear skies and a nice dry evening. The lantern parade itself wasn’t as good as...
