THOUSANDS of people have descended on Glasgow Green for its annual Bonfire Night spectacular.

Around 55,000 were estimated to attend the 20-minute display and fairground festivities.

Hosts David Farrell and Jennifer Reoch kept the crowd entertained as the countdown commenced to the moment the skies lit up to a timed music display.

David, who formerly hosted STV Glasgow’s Riverside Show, took to social media after the event to thank the many thousands who came along.

He wrote: “Great fun hosting Glasgow fireworks with Jennifer Reoch - we can’t stay apart.

“Thanks for coming down if you were in the 60,000 strong crowd.”

Hundreds of revellers poured through the park gates as early as two-and-a-half hours before the event began.

“We come every year. We love it,” said Paula Phinn, mum to three-year-old Brady and Lacey, aged seven.

“I’ve brought Brady since he was in a pram. Some kids are frightened of it but they’ve always loved it.

“They’re so excited to go on the rides, they keep talking about the swings and the cups.”

While cousins Leo Cooper and Lucy Woods were new to the traditional Guy Fawkes night experience.

The three-year-old duo, who were born just six weeks apart, spent their time excitedly dancing in the fairground before heading settling down for the big show.

Leo’s mum said: “It’s our first year with them and we were a bit nervous but they’ve loved it.

“They’re not bothered by the firework noise at all.

“They were more excited for this than they were for Christmas.”

Arguably one of the youngest guests on the night was one-year-old Ellie McCluskey, who attended alongside brother Cole, aged six, and three-year-old sister Ayleah, as well as Kayla Brannan, seven, Jayden Brannan, 11, and Olivia Brannan, age five.

The tot’s mum told the Evening Times: “The older kids love it and the wee ones seem to be enjoying it too.

“All we’ve been hearing all night is ‘when we can do the next ride?’.”
