The Kilwinning Community Fireworks will be held on Sunday 5th November again at McGavin Park.
This year we will have two displays on one night, the first display at 6pm which will be a low noise display lasting 5 minutes especially suited to those will low noise tolerances and young families.
Then assembling for 6.45 the full length 18 minute display. There will be all the usual extras during the night with fire acts performing, free ballon art and great entertainment on the stage. The organisers suggest you plan to arrive early, remembering no glass, dogs or diy fireworks are allowed on site. Bring a torch and wear your wellies. The kids rides this year will be available from gates opening at 4.15 plus the usual food outlets and community stalls. Organisers are encouraging as many visitors as possible to walk or use public transport. This year the main parking will be at Kilwinning college and town centre, from there walk through Kilwinning Academy and you will be on site in minutes. The Fireworks are organised by Kilwinning Community Events who rely on the support of community partners and donations received in the collecting buckets. Donald Reid who is the lead organiser and chair of KCE advises "with the demise of the Kilmarnock display we will be the only public display operating in Ayrshire on the Sunday night, this is very likely to lead to a much bigger attendance this year which we are planning for with extra parking and stewarding, which all adds to the groups overheads so we do hope people who can afford it are generous in their support via our collecting buckets"
