The sky was illuminated not only by fireworks, but also by spectacular flashes that occurred in parallel with the organized shows.

High temperatures during the day and the threat of a huge thunderstorm in the evening had threatened to drive spectators away.

But, although numbers dipped at last year’s event, crowds flocked to the Esplanade, South Perth foreshore and Kings Park to see this year’s fireworks.

For those who braved the conditions, the reward was spectacular.

One reveler said the display was “absolutely fantastic, well worth getting wet”.
