Fire officers anticipate a cracker of a night
The skies will light up in Twizel tonight as the Twizel volunteer fire brigade hosts its annual fireworks display.
The event will take place at the Twizel Area School fields, with brigade members hosting a safety display before the event, as well as giving locals the opportunity to take a look at some of the brigade's trucks and equipment.
Station officer Simon Fox said it was a great opportunity for any families to bring their fireworks down to be let off in a controlled manner.
"Local businesses sponsor the purchase of fireworks which the brigade is grateful for," he said.
"This is a great opportunity for brigade members to get among our youth and promote the volunteer work we do.
"All brigade members really enjoy this night."
The activities begin at 7pm with the fireworks display starting about 9pm.
