The sky above the Vale of Belvoir was awash with colour as the ninth Belvoir Castle national firework championships organised by MLE Pyrotechnics, took place on Saturday.
Thousands of people enjoyed colourful illuminations from three teams who competed against each other with 10-minute firework displays choreographed to music.
The competitors doing battle this year were Skydazle Pyrotechnics, of Newport, South Wales, Kimbolton Fireworks, of Cambridge and Firework Crazy, of Chelmsford, Essex.
Other pre-display entertainment included a bouncy castle, small fairground and a sales stand from BMW representatives.
A spokeswoman for MLE Pyrotechnics said: “This was our biggest event of the year so far and the fireworks were spectacular.
“The weather early evening was lovely which I think helped boost attendance numbers.
“This year’s winners as voted for by the crowds were our team from Chelmsford, Firework Crazy.”
