Fawkes in The Walks, King’s Lynn’s annual free firework display, returns on Friday, November 3.
Thousands are expected to gather in The Walks, to see a traditional bonfire and a dazzling firework display.
The fun will begin at 6pm, when the park will be packed with stalls and rides.
West Norfolk Mayor Carol Bower will light the bonfire at 6:30pm, while the firework display is scheduled to begin at 8pm.
Elizabeth Nockolds, West Norfolk council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for culture, heritage and health, said: “Fawkes in The Walks is set to be as spectacular an event as usual, and I’d urge everyone to come along and join us. We’ve planned an amazing firework display for everyone to enjoy in a safe and controlled environment.”
For the first time ever, Fawkes in The Walks will have its own Snapchat filter. Between 5pm and 9pm users can add the official filter to their snaps.
A voluntary collection will be made on the evening to help cover the cost of the event, and every donation is appreciated. Charges may be made for other activities.
Children under 12 should be accompanied by an adult. People are advised not to bring pets to the park during the evening.
This is an organised display, and private fireworks are not permitted in The Walks.
The entrance to The Walks from Seven Sisters/Extons Road will be closed on the evening from 7.45pm, and those planning to enter the park from that end are advised to use the Tennyson Avenue entrance instead.
The most convenient car park for the event is the St James’ multi-storey, and attendees are advised to use this.
