Thousands of visitors are expected to enjoy a memorable fireworks show at this year’s Council display being held in Dumbarton.

West Dunbartonshire Council is hosting the free display on Sunday 5 November, at Levengrove Park in Dumbarton starting at 7pm. Along with the great fireworks, there will be children’s fun fair rides and stalls selling hot food.

The display, delivered by 21CC Group, is expected to attract around 5,000 spectators.

The 20-minute show will feature a range of exciting fireworks, including comets, mines, spinners, hummers, whistles, and strobes, and will light up the sky in an array of colours.

Visitors are advised to arrive in plenty of time and, if possible, walk to the event or use public transport as many of the streets around the park will have parking restrictions in place and there is no official event parking.

People are being urged not to bring their own fireworks or sparklers as these can present a safety issue within large crowds, and are also advised to leave pets at home.

Councillor David McBride, Partner Director of West Dunbartonshire Leisure Trust, which is staging the event on behalf of the Council, and also Convener of Infrastructure Regeneration and Economic Development, said: “This free event will give residents and visitors the chance to enjoy an outstanding display which is perfect for the whole family. We expect the event to be extremely popular so would encourage those attending to make use of public transport – Levengrove Park has great links with both rail and bus services available nearby. If driving is unavoidable, please adhere to parking restrictions in the vicinity.”

The build-up to the main event starts at 7pm, with fireworks starting at 7.30pm prompt.

Visitors are asked to arrive in plenty of time to avoid disappointment, adhere to parking restrictions in and around the venue and follow advice from the stewards at all times.
