The Springbank Fireworks Extravaganza has been running since 2011. The main purpose of the event is so that family and friends of the school and the wider Bay of Islands community, can enjoy a large-scale fireworks show. The event secondly a fundraising opportunity for the Friends of Springbank School. The event is fully organised by the Friends of Springbank School Committee, along with help from school students, parents and staff.
The Fireworks show is professionally organised and run by qualified pyrotechnic specialists, who create a spectacular 10-minute show for the public.
Each year approximately 2500+ people from all over the Bay of Islands enjoy an evening of live music, food and drink stalls, bouncy castle for the kids and the dazzling fireworks show.
Year on year we consistently receive fantastic feedback from the local community, and we are very proud of this unique event.
The Springbank Fireworks Extravaganza is completely alcohol, smoke, vape and drug fee and is a wonderfully safe, family friendly event.
The 12th annual Friends of Springbank Fireworks Extravaganza was held on Saturday 4th November 2023, and what an amazing evening it was!
The weather was perfect, with warm, calm conditions, and it was wonderful to welcome so many people onto the Springbank School grounds. This was one of the biggest spectator turnouts to date, with an estimated 3,700 coming through the gates to enjoy the evening and watch the fireworks display.
This year a Pop A Prize was run, with the first 1000 people through the gates getting a spot prize ticket to have the chance to pop a balloon and win one of twelve fantastic prize packages. A huge thank you to all of our valued sponsors who donated prizes for this.
A massive thanks goes to Springbank School community of staff, students, and parents who helped make the event run so smoothly from start to end. Congratulations to Mike and Ben Warren on another epic fireworks display; the timing of the fireworks to the music was awesome, and listening to the reaction from the crowd, they also loved it!
The last and biggest thank you goes to the Friends of Springbank committee, who work extremely hard coordinating and running this community event. It was a fabulous evening!
See everyone again for 2024!
