Thousands of people packed South Shields seafront to enjoy the spectacular annual Bonfire Night extravaganza.
Spectators of all ages were left spellbound as the dark backdrop of the night sky was lit up in an explosion of colour.
Visitors to the attraction, compered by DJ and magician Steve Keys, were treated to two displays.
This year’s theme was ‘Spellbound’ with both displays backed by a series of musical tracks.
The event was organised by South Tyneside Council inconjuntion with Ocean Beach Pleasure Park.
Throughout the event visitors were able to enjoy all the fun of the fair for one of the final times of 2017, as rides opened for the annual occasion.
