AROUND 3,000 spectators flocked to Peebles' Victoria Park to see a superhero themed fireworks display soar into the sky on Saturday evening.

A fine and dry night provided the perfect atmosphere to watch this year's spectacle light up the Tweeddale town.

Kingsland Primary School kept with the theme and prepared a 'super guy' for the bonfire celebrations at 7pm. Half an hour later, Beltane Queen Emily Carrick-Anderson signalled the start of the fireworks by pushing down on the red plunger.

Matt Kennedy, chairman of Peebles and District Round Table said: "Peebles' Bonfire and Fireworks night was once again a great success. The Round Table are grateful for the continued sponsorship of Stobo Castle which means that all the donations made on the night can go directly to local good causes.

"This event has really grown over recent years and on this occasion spectators were entertained with an intense 'Superhero' show set to music.

"Peebles and District Round Table relies on it's members to keep their fundraising activities going - they would love to hear from you if you are interested in finding out more about what they do and their active social calendar."

Jenni Watts, from Stobo Castle added: "We would like to convey our heartfelt thanks to the Peebles and District Round Table who each year put huge amounts of time and effort into creating a fantastic fireworks event for the whole of Peebles, and further afield, to enjoy.

"We truly believe this year’s display was the most spectacular in the whole of Scotland."
