Bonfire Night: Firework displays in and around Preston
It’s almost the time of year again to remember, remember the 5th of November and celebrate Guy Fawkes Night with things that go ‘bang’. This year the bonfire season starts a little earlier on 3rd November with many bonfires lit on the Saturday night.
Around Preston there will be many professional organised displays taking place. Grouped together here are the ones taking place in and around Preston. If there any we have missed let us know.
We will update later with displays taking place in wider Lancashire.
