Melaque St Patricks Fireworks evening! March 12, 2016

Our evening began with dinner and dancing at the Salamandra Restaurant.  A few people in our group had some dental work done in Melaque and it turns out Dr Woo also sings at this restaurant.  We had a great evening and the entertainment wonderful! We headed down to the Centro Plaza about 10:30 which was packed, ages from about 10 years to the "seniors"!  Shortly after 11pm the fireworks began.  It was a metal framed tower holding various stages of the fireworks display.  Incredibly the area is not cordoned off and people were gathering around the structure.  After the main display it is a "running of the bulls"with mainly young locals with fireworks attached to their back running into the crowd chasing and being chased while the fireworks on them are spewing into the crowd.  ONE OF A KIND EXPERIENCE!! :)

"Another" excellent dinner
