The firework display also took place after increased security was agreed following disruption at an event on July 17.

Ramsgate RNLI also attended aboard the All-weather boat Esme Anderson and answered questions from parents and children.

Isle photographer Carole Adams caught the fun on camera.



  1. and was there any disturbance
    will see that police presence on my council tax bill for next year
    it is not the answer
    to have a disperal area
    still live and learn they do not work

  2. It’s great to see the Water Gala’s still going,pulling the crowds in. I remember that some years ago when it was held mid-August,the Hovercraft would come into Viking Bay and the Red Arrows would zoom in over the rooftops to do their fabulous aerobatics across the Viking Bay Skies;fabulous! In those days my family loved coming on holiday to Broadstairs to a balcony flat at Eagle House on the beach, from which we had a superb views of everything going on.
