    On 16th and 17th of Aug there is gonna be a huge fireworks display competition launching from the mountbattern breakwater in Plymouth. We have one of these every year, and they're always spectacular, with huge displays from about 6 different teams each night. But i've always kinda wondered why exactly we get these. It's called a competition, and so i've always assumed that the many differnent displays are put on by rival companies or something, but i've never actually heard of a fireworks display league or anything. Never known who's won, either, come to that. Does anywhere else host a competition like this? Is it a regular, national thing, or just peculiar to plymouth? I think some of the teams come from abroad, so it this some kind of worldwide super-tournament?? Well, whatever, i look forward to going, seeing as it's free, and like i said really really impressive. Anyone close enough to plymouth to go, do so. I think they normally start at about 10, but the whole city comes up to the Ho to watch, so to find a patch of grass to sit on, let alone parking, you gotta get here early. Of course the best place is out on the water, but we don;t have a boat big enough to get 'round the mewstone any more
