Town Council Supports Fire Festival Event

The “Paraffinalia” fire festival in Campbell Park, supported this year by CMK Town Council, drew big crowds and high praise at its spectacular display on Saturday 17 December. One of the shortest days of the year was warmed up by an evening of fire performances, drummers, lantern parades and local food, drawing a crowd of over 27,000 people.

The event, now in its third year, culminated in a dramatic outdoor theatre performance where the distinctive giant puppets and sculptures that have become a recognisable feature of Festive Road Events took part in a spectacular show of pyrotechnics and sound.

CMK Town Council gave financial support to Festive Road for this event through our grants programme, which supports events and community projects in CMK Parish.
