A Flashback to Bilbo's Childhood? (Possible Spoilers) Can't Post

Hi everyone! I'm a longtime reader, but this is my first post. In Brian Sibley's movie guide, there is a picture of Gandalf with hobbit children dancing around him, and a cartload of fireworks in the background at what is clearly a party in the Shire (it was one of the 66 behind-the-scenes images that had to be taken down for copyright reasons). At first I didn't think much of it, other than that it was a good picture. Then I started wondering, because there is no scene like it in The Hobbit, and I can't imagine a place where one might be. However, it has been mentioned that Gandalf takes a particular interest in Bilbo because he remembers him being an adventurous child. Could it be that we will see a flashback to one of the Old Took's parties, in which Bilbo catches Gandalf's attention by doing something "adventurous"?
My apologies if this has been discussed before and I have missed it Smile
