OPINION: The Eastern Riverina community was given a treat with a major fireworks display at the Kings Own at The Rock.
It was a chance for families and members of the community to gather and watch two major fireworks displays plus enjoy the tradition of medieval jousting.
To see an event which truly catered for families was heartening.
It was also an opportunity to give the younger generations a taste of what the atmosphere is like on “bonfire night” or “cracker night” as it was once known.
Bonfire night has come under scrutiny in some shires for wreaking havoc on animals and causing stress.
Yet the organisers of The Rock event should be commended for offering the entire community a chance to enjoy this tradition in a safe environment.
