Bonfire night is that one night of the year where the evening is dedicated to bonfires, fireworks and celebrations across the country. It is common for friends, families and partners all to enjoy the beauty of these fireworks and bonfires at public displays, or at smaller private gatherings with friends and family.
North Wales is well equipped with bonfire and fireworks displays, with various public showings taking place across the region. The Conwy area is a great place to enjoy beautiful firework displays across the sky, with pyrotechnics designed to make you ‘wow’. Perfect for all the family, the fireworks displays within the area have upheld an exceptional reputation year after year, entertaining thousands of people at the public displays – and tonight will be no different.
In the Conwy area, there are two main public displays taking place, Monday 5th November 2012. The displays take place in the following locations:
Llandudno Fireworks Display
Llandudno’s fireworks display is a public showing of stunning colours and explosions in the sky lasting approximately thirty minutes. The display is set off from Llandudno Pier on the promenade, with free viewing from across the promenade and other areas of the town where you are able to enjoy the display. The display starts at approximately 7:30pm and entry is free!
Colwyn Bay Fireworks Display
Colwyn Bay’s annual firework display takes place at Eirias Park, across 50 acres of beautiful parkland and is lit from around the boating lake. The display is always a great success and is completely free to come along and enjoy. The bonfire at this display is lit at 7:15pm and the fireworks display begins at 7:30pm on the parkland surrounding the boating lake!
Whether you want to enjoy these public displays or a private display, you should remember one thing; be safe! Fireworks can cause accidents, with people getting injured every year. Be responsible with lighting fireworks and using sparklers, but at the same time enjoy your evening!
Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why the Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t’was his intent
To blow up the King and Parli’ment.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England’s overthrow;
By God’s providence he was catch’d
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the Queen!
