Fireworks last night

By Backspace 10 November 2008 25

Hi folks. I rarely come here but I think the site is a real gem.

Did anyone hear, see those fireworks around Mawson last night?

I saw some go off over near Lyons, and at what must have been 2am a whole bunch more went off right near my window.

I suppose we get it from time to time, no one at work heard them just wondering  if any of you guys did?

Just to clarify, my post was designed to have a bit of a ding all in the good fun of keeping up the Nth vs Sth rivalry. I was born and bred southsider till I moved to the dark side. 🙂

Meh…bloody southside. We NEVER have this kind of thing happen on the Northside!

mainly because we all moved to the southside. not saying i was responsible for this particular event, but a fellow ex northsider was for the 12am in kambah…

I heard them in Chifley early Monday morning (just after midnight and then again after 2). They seemed to go on for ages (but prob only a few minutes). When I looked out the window they seemed to be being let off only a few houses away.

Swings and roundabouts tylers. We southerners have little access to Government funded public art – we need to make our own pretties.

There were some about 12am on Friday night in Kambah,

And they were pretty colours!

I heard something go off from my humble lodgings in Watson….

The Asians next door had a rice boy party on Friday. It involved a big banger cracker around 10pm that frightened the dogs. I sent the missus outside to tell them to shut the frack up, before I had another glass of red.

Is it the tim of grad balls already?

I watched those fireworks go off. Above Mawson at 2am. Pretty colours.

“I saw a fire engine entering a road at the side of the Canberra Centre yesterday, does anyone know what was going on? Also, my neighbour’s dog barked twice this morning, what’s all that about?? Anyone??”

Maybe ask the guy from the Italian restuarant in Narrabundah who is looking for a venue for Christmas lunch because his restaurant wont be ready as he cant find any roof tiles in Canberra.

For f**ks sake! Something of such earth shattering importance is bound to be on WIN News tonight or maybe front page of The Canberra Times.

The libs proposed pre-election to ba fireworks. Will they use their huge Stanhope-toppling victorious mandate to band together with the greens to put an end to fireworks in the ACT? See how being crossbench can result in good outcomes, the greens could not do that sort of thing if they were in cabinet.

I heard them all the way down in Monash

You 7:08 pm 10 Nov 08

I also heard the ones in Mawson at 2 am. I could swear they were being let off on Wilkins St. Went on for about 30 seconds and pretty much woke up the entire suburb.

Sorry, the boss says it was the night before in Wanniassa. It was in the wee hours, and they were littlies, you wouldn’t have heard them more than a few houses away.

trevar 6:19 pm 10 Nov 08

Also right outside our bedroom window in Wanniassa…

MRJ 5:33 pm 10 Nov 08

Yeah, I heard them in Duffy too. Not sure what time, but they sounded like gunshots at first.

gunslingr 4:56 pm 10 Nov 08

I definitely heard the fireworks at around 2am in Garran, but at around 8.30-9 there was a pretty massive sounding explosion as if something large was being detonated near the hospital (or even the hospital itself…). Any ideas what that one was?

I was under the impression that the 2am bangs were coming from Edison Park, but I wouldn’t necessarily back my sense of direction at that time of night.

Ibu 4:49 pm 10 Nov 08

Heard them in Curtin

Primal 4:27 pm 10 Nov 08

Heard some going off from Waramanga late at night about a week ago. Probably the same parties involved.
