#Hastings #Bonfire Celebrations 2017 - Part 2

If you missed it, you can find part 1 here.



Here are the rest of the videos Kelly did for me of this year's Hastings Bonfire celebrations. Enjoy!











































There were more fireworks than you hear in the videos. Some of them were even close enough to where we live that Lilie and I could hear them from home. Kelly never got photos or videos of those though, which is a shame, because they were AWESOME! Still, I hope you enjoyed what he did get. I know I did!

Wow! Good job, Kelly! And what a great time of celebration. Between the fire and the fireworks and the other festivities it looks like a real night to remember. Guy Fawkes would be proud!

Jeanie:
Yeah, it was quite a celebration... Kelly really enjoyed, and I enjoyed the videos afterwards.

Loved seeing all the costumes even if I'm not sure what the difference is with the various colored striped tops. Love the long skirts and bonnets. Looks like quite a popular festival! :)

Rita:
We have no idea either. All we know is it was fun, and lots of others seemed to be enjoying it too. We aren't even entirely certain how much of this was for the anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, and how much of it was for Bonfire Night.

About the 4th paragraph explains the striped outfits as "Smuggler Uniforms".

Ah, OK... Yes, I just read it and that does seem to fit. Interesting post. Thanks for finding and sharing it!
