Bonfire and firework display night is approaching and North Wales‘ residents and visitors will want to make the most of the annual occasion in 2013 by enjoying beautiful and exciting bonfire and firework displays within the region.
Remember, remember the Fifth of November, The Gunpowder Treason and Plot…
Bonfire night is that one night of the year (5th November) where the evening is dedicated to bonfires, fireworks and celebrations across the entire country. Hosting and attending parties is often common among families and friends, along with attendance to big public displays.
North Wales is very well equipped with bonfire and firework displays, with a number of showings/displays taking place over the region. Whether you’re local or visiting the area, there are displays perfect for everyone in all of North Wales’ towns and counties.
Get ready for an evening of fun, excitement and specialist pyrotechnics put on display by professionals that will ensure the show makes you “wow”. Either free – or for a small fee, there are a number of public displays that you will be able to attend!
North Wales Fire and Rescue team are working hard to keep bonfire nights injury free – and suggest that you attend and organised and professionally carried out event rather than set off your own at home or at a friends/families gathering. The best way to cut down on injuries is to attend community events. By doing this, you are also helping to keep fireworks contained to a specific area, which will have less harm on wildlife, elderly, those who dislike or are afraid of fireworks, pets, young children and many others.
Carelessness with sparklers at bonfire and firework displays are one of the biggest problems on the 5th November. Sparklers should not be given to young children or anyone that cannot be responsible for using them in a safe way. Many firework rockets travel at speeds around 150mph and can travel as far as 200 metres. If they are used in the wrong hands, they can be fatal, so should be left for use by professionals.
Nevertheless, we sincerely hope you enjoy this wonderful night – full of colour, sound, patterns and explosions! See below for a list of bonfire and firework displays in the North Wales region.
