Kilwinning's big fireworks display is set to be back with a bang next month.

Kilwinning Community Events will host the fireworks on Friday, November 4 in McGavin Park, Dalry Road.

Food outlets and kids' rides open at 4.30pm while fire acts and free balloon art start at 5pm.

The lower noise family display begins at 6pm, with the main pyromusical display at 7.30pm.

Organisers advise to remember warm clothes, wellies or boots, and a torch.

Councillor Donald Reid said: "Make sure your children have a note of your name and mobile in case getting separated. Tell them to go to any steward if separated and we will have a lost children post signed at the stage and pavilion in the centre of the park.

"Please consider all other options before driving to the fireworks wherever possible. We have Park and Walk routes signposted from Kilwinning railway station (via Claremont Crescent) and Kilwinning town centre parking (via college and the Academy) plus the college car park.

"Please follow the signage and stewards will help. Please do plan to arrive early."

Blue badge parking will be available (but limited) at Kilwinning Academy and blue badge holders are asked to have their badge on display.

The venue is close to local bus routes, and toilets - including an accessible toilet - will be available at the Pavilion.

Burgers, doughnuts and ice cream will be available from food vendors, while glow sticks will also be on sale - though the organisers are asking people to only use licensed operators within the park.

There will be a collecting bucket at the Balloon Art, Magician and Uncle Billy from 5pm.

Cllr Reid added: "This event is delivered by volunteers at Kilwinning Community Events so therefore donations are essential to keeping the event going.

"On the night we will have buckets out, the suggested donation guide is £8 per family or what you can afford.

"We have provided online payment for visitors following many requests. We look forward to seeing you all."
