Silver spiders in the sky

THE sky above Crystal Creek Public School will erupt in sparkles of silver spiders and glittering green tiger tails this Saturday night.

The 24th annual Crystal Creek Fireworks Spectacular will feature plenty of new effects, never before seen at the fundraiser, Max Brunner from Skylighter Fireworks said.

“Two to look out for are the silver spider and green candle wall,” Mr Brunner said.

“The silver spider is the new effect that has fireworks design teams talking all over the world.

The effect, Mr Brunner said, is by far the most unique item to be developed in many years.

“The item projects silver comet tails high into the night sky before bursting into a splendid silver glitter, crackling and spider effect.”

But he added the 530s shot green candle wall is also not to be missed.

“The green tiger tail com- ets are fired in rapid success- ion, creating a static wall of green glitter,” Mr Brunner said.

“All 530 shots are fired within 25 seconds, creating an exciting high point during the early stages of the display.

“This is a very majestic effect.”

Skylighter Fireworks have run the Crystal Creek Fireworks Spectacular for about six years, and also provided the New Year's Eve fireworks at Cabarita Beach last December.

P&C Association president Kelly Plomgren said the fireworks at 7pm are just one highlight of the family fun afternoon, starting at 2pm.

“Rides include the rock wall, giant chairs and mega fun house. Unlimited ride passes can be pre-purchased for only $25 from the school or Century 21 Real Estate in Murwillumbah,” Mrs Plomgren said.

“This year's performers include the Margaret Peate School of Dance, Murwillum- bah East Sydney choir, Hoop- la Circus Troupe, Belly Dance For Fun, Hap Ki Do and the Hot Chilli Drummers.

“There will also be displays from the Tweed Valley Re- storers Club, a police highway patrol vehicle, fire engine, ambulance and emergency services vehicle for the kids to explore.

Gourmet food and coffee stalls will cater for all tastes.
