Vauxhall Fire Festival

It’s Halloween night and we needed something to do since we wouldn’t have trick-or-treaters to stay home and give candy to, nor did we have any Halloween parties to attend. Not to mention how gorgeous of a day it turned out to be. Thankfully, TimeOut London has a great list of things to do around London on any given day. After sifting through the numerous entries that involved going out at 11pm drinking and dancing until the early hours, we discovered a free fireworks display and festival in Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens.

We headed there after work, arriving around 19:00 and JUST in time for the fireworks to begin. Literally as we were walking up to the festival, the fireworks began going off. Perfect timing!

We listened to the music and watched the display for a bit, and then moved on to walk around and see what else was nearby. There were a few food stalls in the area, and people had brought their dinner to eat on the grass. Knowing it was to be a beautiful evening, we had brought cigars, so we pulled those out and strolled around the park for a while before finding a bench to sit and talk for a while before heading home.

There was good music, great people, and wonderful weather. Couldn’t have asked for a better night!
