Fylde Coast Fireworks and Bonfires – Great Community Events!
We love where we live here at Visit Fylde Coast. One of the many things that make it special is the amazing sense of community spirit.
Most of these Fylde Coast Fireworks and Bonfires are organised by dedicated teams of volunteers. They raise money throughout the year in order to bring you a great night out. The amount of work and organisation which goes into this kind of evening is not to be underestimated. The paperwork for any event is bad enough but add fireworks into the mix and, well, you can imagine….
So please go along, have a great night out, and make a donation to their fund. Without financial contributions and practical help events like this couldn’t happen.
It’s also a traditional time of year to get rid of large items of rubbish. Some of the communal bonfire organisers will accept donations of firewood.
As a rule of thumb it should be clean, dry sawn wood that will burn quickly without producing a lot of smoke. Details of how to donate wood are shown at the relevant links above.
Pets and Bonfire Night
Bonfire Night is a great event. Depending on what day the 5th November falls on, it can go on for several days! However, please don’t forget your pets when you’re having a great time.
Animals react in different ways – some couldn’t care less and others go mad at the least sound.
Here are some tips from Vets4Pets Cleveleys to help your pet to survive the stress of bonfire night this year.
PLEASE also check underneath bonfires for hedgehogs BEFORE lighting them.
Origins of Bonfire Night
Do you like history and finding out about why we celebrate things that we do today?
Over the last four hundred years, the story of Bonfire Night has followed twists and turns to give us the celebration we have today.
It’s a tradition tasty treat to have at this time of year. Why don’t you have a go at making some of Grandma’s Parkin? It’s dead easy to do.
