Kwai Bridge Fireworks

Kwai Bridge Fireworks
Originally uploaded by Bill Bevan
The River Kwai Bridge Week, Kanchanaburi, Thailand opens with a bang as the sound and light show is brought to a finale with fireworks.

The Show uses coloured lights, sound effects, narration, actors, smoke, explosions, remote-controlled planes, fire and fireworks to retell the story of the Japanese invasion of South-East Asia, the building of the Thai-Burma Railway, the death of thousands of workers and Allied POWs and the bombing of the Bridge Over the River Kwai by the Allies during World War 2!

The photo was taken from the River Kwai Floating Restaurant. Thank you to Rose for giving me permission to photograph from the restaurant.
