Once the awards where handed out it was off outside to witness the spectacle of the fireworks display, it's always recommend to turn environment settings to night for the best effects as particles lit up the sky.
Finally it was back inside the bar area, to knock back a few glasses, fiddle with fliptags and dance the night away with the person next to you.
