The final countdown is on for this year’s Kilwinning fireworks.

Kilwinning Community Fireworks return this Sunday, November 4 at McGavin Park, with two displays.

The first is a short lower noise display at 6pm, this has been introduced for young families and those who don’t like the big bangs.

The big 18 minute display will be after 6.45pm which promises to be one of the best displays locally, supplied by Midnight Storm.

Donald Reid, chairman of Kilwinning Community Events, said: “The fireworks is always a busy night in Kilwinning and the fact we have two displays on one night might make us even busier.

“Do follow the signs to the car parks and avoid entering residential streets as these will be covered by traffic management and regulations.

“We will have stewards on hand to help you find a parking space safely.

“We have been watching the weather carefully and this might effect aspects of the event so keep an eye on social media for updates.”

Organisers suggest arriving early as they expect there to be queues and busy roads.

The main car park is at Kilwinning College then walking through the school, Kilwinning Station with Blue Badge holder parking at Kilwinning Academy on a first come basis to 6.15pm.

The fairground open from 4.30pm and entertainment on stage from 5pm plus free balloon art and fire acts to keep you amused.

Please ensure all young children have an adult’s contact details in case of separation.
