Hey do you want to hear about my story? On Guy Fawkes I went to the Waitakere Fireworks show. There were marching bands, dancing, motorbike treks, a rescue helicopter and a wheel boat. It was night time all the lights turned off and the fireworks started. There were glow sticks and the fireworks were loud. After that we went to Action World.
