It meant that bonfires across the Harborough district were well attended.
At the main Market Harborough bonfire, organised by St Joseph’s Primary School, there were around 4,000 people enjoying a spectacular fireworks display.
Organiser-in-chief John Cooper said: “I think it’s one of the best we’ve had, especially with November 5 falling on a Saturday and the weather being kind.” The event took almost £9,500 in gate receipts.
The big Lutterworth bonfire event - at Lutterworth Golf Club - was attended by more than 2,000 people.
Every year the event makes donations to local charities.
