Plenty of cannon fire. I am a fan of loud explosions too, so we enjoyed this immensely.
The Roman gladiators gave me a teachable moment regarding weapon safety. Lucky the ambulance people were on hand!
Late afternoon over the Brisbane River. It was a chilly day, very windy out near the coast.
We stayed to see the 64 pound guns (or whatever they are called) fired at the end of the day. Sadly only one went off, the other decided to be tempermental, and I can only assume that some men would be up half the night figuring out what went wrong.
It was a lot of fun, some of the displays were marvellously elaborate. We all found plenty to enjoy. I am going to send the organisers an email suggesting a few more arts and crafts, but we'll go back again next year, regardless!
