Fawkes in The Walks, King's Lynn's annual free firework display, returns on Friday.
Now in its ninth year, this highlight of the town's winter events calendar promises to be just as impressive as always.
Thousands will gather in The Walks for a traditional bonfire and a dazzling firework display.
The fun starts 6pm, when the park will be packed with stalls and rides.
West Norfolk Mayor Carol Bower will light the bonfire at 6:30pm, and the firework display is scheduled to start at 8pm.
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 and let their friends know they're enjoying the event.
