Wellington Scoop

SCOOP IMAGES: Fireworks in the rain

The annual Pelorus Trust Sky Show tonight provided Wellingtonians with another spectacular display, in spite of light rain.

The 12-minute fireworks display on the harbour was set to a soundtrack designed by Strike, the Wellington drumming and percussion group.

Crowds on the waterfront heard the Strike soundtrack synchronised live to the display.

Those watching from other vantage points could hear it broadcast on two local radio stations.

The display was launched off two barges. Some roads were closed to control the traffic.
