Fiery Fountains

October 31st, 2014, 5pm

I’d been wanting to get to the amazing fountains in Granary Square, King’s Cross Central, at night time for ages. I’d heard how great they look when they’re all lit up. I finally got the chance last Friday - Reformation Day (or to use the more common identifier, Halloween) - when the pumpkins on the steps down to the Regent’s Canal were all lit up too.

The sight was indeed magical, especially when all 1,080 jets were aglow with orange-red light. And what really made it was the fact that it was unseasonably mild - having reached 24 C earlier in the day! - and the end of school half term holiday, which meant there were loads of kids splashing through the water (and toddlers in nappies/diapers!), just enjoying the occasion and without parents fretting over their little darlings getting frozen. Wonderful!
