Charlie-Bruns-night-market-2013-EJ-9W6A1401

Summer wouldn’t be the same in Brunswick Heads without the traditional night market and fireworks to kick off the start of the festive season and the school holidays.

It was held at Banner Park, which is home for the next four weeks to the McGregor Family Amusements carnival and the VRA Housie Tent and, from mid-January, the Festival of the Fish and Chips. During the evening thousands gathered in the streets and cafes, and lined the banks of the river, celebrating a beautiful evening in Bruns and enjoying the sights, smells and flavours of this very popular annual event.

At nine o’clock the crowd was drawn to the river in anticipation of the fireworks show and squeals of delight rose collectively from the voices of the hundreds of children enjoying the beautiful blooms exploding in the night sky.
