The Paisley Fireworks event this year was on probably the wettest night of the year but luckily the event didn’t become a damp squib. There were rumours on social media of the event being cancelled during the day, so after a frantic flurry of phone calls and social media postings we managed to inform as many people as possible that the event was still on. The referee at St Mirren Park didn’t get the memo though as the game between St Mirren and Ross County was abandoned, just around the same time that Renfrewshire Council officials confirmed the display in Paisley would still go ahead.
Photographers from Paisley on the web were still in town braving the non stop rain to capture some excellent photographs of the days’ events, hosted by Clyde 1’s Gina McKie and including some great young local talent on stage.
The second set of photographs were taken by Alex Slaven for www.paisley.org.uk
