Festival fireworks light up weekend

Waiting for Video...

A ‘SPECTACULAR’ Worthing Lions Festival saw thousands of people descend upon the town to experience a variety of events and activities.

Fairground rides and inflatables, a boutique market selling everything from jewellery to exotic cuisine, and a host of brand new cars lined the promenade over the weekend. Car and motorcycle enthusiasts could be found in Steyne Gardens, which hosted a motorbike event on the Saturday and an American and custom car show on the Sunday.

Saturday night’s firework display at the end of the pier, ended the evening with a bang, as families watched on from the beach.

Marian Down, PR officer for the Lions, said: “The highlight was seeing so many people enjoy themselves.

“I came back from holiday early for it, that’s how deeply I feel about it. It goes from strength to strength. It was spectacular. The weather helped tremendously and people came out.”
