Thames Festival Fireworks!

Thames Festival took place this passed weekend (9/12-9/13). I did not attend the festival which had some street vendors, markets, and carnival, but I did go to the grand finale that ended the celebration. What else is better to conclude an event than some fireworks? (Disneyland does it every single night.) The fireworks took place at 9:45 pm and lasted for just 10 minutes but it was pretty grand. It was over the Thames. From where I was standing, the Golden Jubilee Bridge, there was little to no obstruction to my view. And seeing the reflection of the fireworks in the river and having the city, prominently St. Paul Cathedral's dome, as the backdrop were awe-inspiring.
