Photo Gallery: Thousands pack Fawkes in The Walks event in King’s Lynn
The night sky above King's Lynn provided the perfect backdrop for a massive firework display last night.
The Fawkes in The Walks event, which is organised by West Norfolk council, attracted many thousands of people for the third year running.
From the moment West Norfolk Mayor Colin Sampson lit the bonfire at 6.30pm, the park was transformed into a hive of activity with stalls, funfair rides, high-energy activities and live entertainment.
Presenters from local radio station KLFM then led the countdown to firework lift off at 8pm, making sure all eyes were firmly on the sky as it exploded in colour.
Speaking ahead of the start of the fireworks display, West Norfolk council cabinet member Elizabeth Nockolds said: 'Fawkes in The Walks has become one of my favourite events of the year.
