Leverhulme Park’s spectacular firework display and community funfair will return this year on Friday, November 1.
The funfair will open at 6pm offering a wide variety of exciting rides while visitors will also be able to enjoy traditional favourites such as black peas, toffee apples and candy-floss.
Presenters from Tower FM will entertain the crowds until 8pm when a free community firework display will fill the night sky with dazzling colour, complete with dramatic musical accompaniment.
The event has been organised by Bolton Council in association with Tower FM and Operation Treacle, a multi-agency initiative to promote safety around Halloween and Bonfire Night.
There is very limited parking close to site and visitors are encouraged to travel by public transport where possible.
Stewards will be present throughout the event, providing visitors with a safe environment to enjoy the display.
To ensure everyone’s safety, people are asked only to attend an official firework display such as this one and not to bring their own fireworks or sparklers to the event.
A free bus to and from the event will be available for 13 to 19-year-olds.
Buses will leave Stand G at Bolton Interchange every 15 minutes from 6pm to 7.15pm and will drop passengers off on Bury Road.
Return journeys to the Bolton Interchange will start at 9pm from Bury Road.
This is a great opportunity for Bolton residents of all ages to enjoy fireworks in a safe and controlled environment.
Bolton Council’s Deputy Leader, Cllr Martyn Cox, said:
“The Leverhulme Park firework display is one of the most popular events of the year and we look forward to welcoming everyone to what I’m sure will be a spectacular evening.
“This is a great opportunity for Bolton residents of all ages to enjoy fireworks in a safe and controlled environment.
“I urge all visitors to plan their journey in advance, so they have plenty of time to enjoy everything on offer.”
