Bon­fire events re­turn

Fam­ily fire­works dis­plays to be hosted at city parks

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today - BY AMY HALL

DUNDEE’S an­nual bon­fire and fire­works dis­play event will re­turn on Guy Fawkes night.

The sky above Tay­side will light up on Novem­ber 5 for the an­nual cel­e­bra­tion, with the city coun­cil con­firm­ing dis­plays for Lochee Park and Bax­ter Park.

There will be a bon­fire lit and a grand fire­works dis­play at each venue.

Both fam­ily-friendly events are sched­uled to get un­der way at around 6pm.

In past years, thou­sands of spec­ta­tors have gath­ered to watch the dis­plays, which have all had dif­fer­ent themes.

Irene Shearer, chair of Friends of Bax­ter Park, urged peo­ple to at­tend the events.

How­ever, she warned of folk bring­ing along their own fire­works.

She added: “The dis­plays are a great fam­ily event.

“It is al­ways very busy but it is also a very safe event.

“It is a con­trolled and safe fire­works dis­play, so I would re­ally urge any mem­bers of the pub­lic to please not bring your own fire­works to the event.

“There has been a lot of money spent on the dis­play, so there re­ally is no need for any­one to bring any more along. Just come along and en­joy the show.”

Ar­broath is set for its third com­mu­nity-funded and or­gan­ised fire­works dis­play on Novem­ber 5.

The event is be­ing held at RM Con­dor mil­i­tary base, with gates open­ing at 5.45pm.

A bon­fire will be lit at 6.30pm and the fire­works dis­play is due to be­gin at 6.40pm.

There will also be a dis­play at Perth’s South Inch Park on Bon­fire Night with live mu­sic and a fun­fair along­side tra­di­tional food stalls.

The Perth dis­play be­gins at 6.30pm with the pub­lic be­ing asked not to bring an­i­mals.

Crowds watch o‘ at last year’s Bax­ter Park eve‘t.
