THOUSANDS of people flocked to Barassie Beach for the annual Community Fireworks Display organised by Troon Round Table.

The event costs the group £5000 to put on and they relied on donations to help fund it.

More than 200 traffic cones were dispersed on the morning of the event.

Donations were still being accepted by the group including PayPal contributions through the Facebook page.

Thanks go to everyone for coming along and a final total raised will be available in a few weeks once all residual donations are collected.

Tammy Houston from Irvine has been going for a few years and took her son Devlin (five) and daughter D’Arcy (two).

She said: “We’ve been coming along for a few years through we missed last year. It’s well organised although it was a bit hectic at the shows.”

Devlin said: “I love the fireworks.”

Louise Harrison of Kilmarnock was there with her two children, Sophia (10) and Olivia (five).

She said: “The kids have their fancy lights and we love it. This is our first time here.”

Kirsty and Callum Macaulay from Ayr enjoyed the experience.

Callum said: “This is my first time here, it’s a really good event, especially since it’s being done for free. We had to walk a long way to park but that’s understandable.”

Added Kirsty: “We tried out the fairground rides later on.”
