Thousands of spectators attended the popular annual fireworks display at Dumbarton and Clydebank over the weekend.

The spectacular pyrotechnic show was hailed a great success as more than 5,000 spectators attended both nights.

The dry weather encouraged families to arrive in plenty of time to enjoy the build up to the main event.

The 20-minute display sent more than 700 fireworks in to the air and out of the darkness the skies were lit up with an array of colours and sounds.

Excited spectators were thrilled with a range of fireworks, including comets, mines, spinners, hummers, whistles, strobes and dragon’s eggs.

Families enjoyed the entertainment as they eagerly waited on the start of the spectacular show.

Councillor Kath Ryall, Chair of West Dunbartonshire Leisure Trust, said: “Once again we put on a great display and both nights were very well attended.

“Families took our advice and turned  up early to enjoy the entertainment and great atmosphere prior to the start of the display. I would also like to thank the many staff who were working at the events for the part they played in making this year’s event one of the best yet.”

Cllr Lawrence O'Neill, West Dunbartonshire Council's political liaison with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, said: "What a great success yet again for our popular displays with thousands of families coming along to enjoy our great free displays.  It was great to see so many people coming along and attending one of the most popular family events of the year.”
