North Yorkshire's biggest
Kaboom is Yorkshire's biggest and best firework party. This year's fully choreographed display of fireworks, lasers and lighting will be synchronised to a specially commissioned music track and will all be viewed whilst wearing special 3D glasses, which create a unique kaleidoscope effect. The dazzling new dimension is a first for this region and has been introduced to compliment our sci-fi and superheroes theme, which is inspired by the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.
The event starts at 5pm when the fair and catering concessions open. A new feature for 2013 is 'The Sparkler Park'. It is really an event within an event and is a safe area especially for families to have fun with sparklers. There will also be a separate programme of entertainment in 'The Sparkler Park' from 5pm especially for our younger audience including magicians, jugglers, balloon modellers, character appearances and a 'fun-size' firework display, which we will fire off at an earlier time of 6.30pm. Griffo from the Minster FM breakfast show will be introducing the acts on the main stage from 5.30pm.
The bonfire will be lit by 7pm. The laser display is scheduled for 7.15pm and the massive Kaboom display is scheduled for 7.30pm (weather permitting)
