Leverhulme Park’s spectacular community firework display and funfair will return on Friday (November 4).
The event, on Friday, November 4, begins at 6pm with the opening of the fair. A range of fantastic rides will be on offer, as well as traditional food favourites such as black peas, toffee apples and candy-floss.
The free community firework display starts at 8pm, when the night sky will then be filled with a dazzling display, complete with dramatic musical accompaniment.
Bolton Council’s Executive Member for Cleaner, Greener, Safer, Elaine Sherrington, said: “The firework display at Leverhulme Park has become a regular highlight in Bolton’s calendar, and is sure to be as spectacular as ever this year.
“With a free, well-organised event like this, families will have less need to buy their own fireworks, and can enjoy the evening safely.
“With a host of activities on offer, as well as the main display, there is something for everyone to enjoy, and I hope as many people as possible will come along and join the fun.”
The events has been organised by Bolton Council and Bolton at Home, in association with Stanley John Cubbins Amusements and Celebration Displays.
Stewards will be present throughout the event, providing visitors with a safe environment to enjoy the display. To ensure everyone’s safety, visitors are asked only to attend an official bonfire such as this one and not to bring their own fireworks or sparklers to the event.
