6 pm weather update: The weather is holding at the moment at New Brighton and the fireworks will go ahead as planned.
Prepare to be SPOOKED on the pier!
Treetech and Christchurch City Council are once again bringing Guy Fawkes to Christchurch with a magnificent fireworks display that will send chills down your spine!
With all the Halloween anthems you know and love, the Treetech Guy Fawkes Fireworks Spectacular or should I say SPOOK-TACULAR! returns to New Brighton Pier Wednesday 5th November.
Get your family and friends together and join us under the moon light to watch hair-raising pyrotechnics, brought to you by Treetech, with the support of radio partner The Breeze.
Firework Professionals bring their creative design to accompany a spectacular choreographed display timed to a thrilling retro Halloween-themed soundtrack – broadcast on The Breeze 94.5FM.
Find a spot within 70 metres either side of the pier to enjoy the soundtrack.
