Council Gears Up for Spectacular Firework Displays

West Dunbartonshire Council will once again, be staging spectacular free firework displays in Dumbarton and Clydebank next month.

The popular displays, which attract thousands of spectators, will be held at Levengrove Park, Dumbarton on Monday 4th November and Dalmuir Park, Clydebank on Tuesday 5th of November with both events starting at 7.00pm and the display beginning at 7.30pm prompt.

Each year the events attract thousands of residents who come to enjoy the great family atmosphere and watch the spectacular fireworks displays. Each display will see over 5000 fireworks lighting up the sky in a spectacular 20 minute display.

Along with the fireworks displays there will also be fun fair rides for youngsters and stalls selling hot food and drinks to keep warm.

Visitors are asked to arrive at the events in plenty of time to avoid disappointment and to travel on foot or by public transport if at all possible, as parking around the venue is limited due to many of the surrounding streets being designated as no parking zones particularly at the Dumbarton event. Visitors are also requested not to bring their own fireworks or sparklers as these can present a safety issue within large crowds.

Cllr David McBride, Convener of the Council's Housing, Environment and Economic Development Committee and Chair of West Dunbartonshire Leisure Trust which is staging the event on behalf of the Council said:

"This year's event promises to be the best yet, with thousands of people expected at both events. Along with the main event, there will be lots of activities to keep the family entertained in the build up to the display. As always, residents should wear suitable clothing on the night, leave pets at home and come along and enjoy one of our spectacular displays."
