Remember, remember the First of November ... because that is the day when the annual Fawkes in The Walks free firework display is taking place.
Now in its fifth year, the spectacular display has fast become a highlight in the town’s winter events calendar and Friday’s event promises to be just as impressive.
The fun starts at 6pm, when the park will be packed with stalls and rides. At 6.30, deputy borough mayor, Barry Ayres will light the bonfire and the main firework display is scheduled to begin at 8pm.
Elizabeth Nockolds, cabinet member for health and wellbeing, said: “The Walks is a fantastic venue for this event and gives local families the opportunity to enjoy bonfire night in a controlled and safe environment. Every year I’ve been really impressed by the displays and there is always a great atmosphere.
“Hopefully, the recent bad weather won’t interrupt everyone’s fun this year.”
Fawkes in The Walks is organised by West Norfolk Council, in partnership with the King’s Lynn Lions.
This year the newly-opened Tesco Extra Hardwick Road store has also agreed to support the event and will be bringing their mobile demo kitchen along.
Members of the Tesco team will be giving away delicious, warming food samples and letting shoppers know what will be offer at their new store.
Andy Holsten, store manager, said: “We are delighted to be able to sponsor this year’s Fawkes in The Walks and support an event that is such a highlight in the King’s Lynn calendar! “
Fawkes in The Walks is free to attend, but a voluntary collection will be made on the evening to help cover the cost of the event.
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; please do not take firewood for the bonfire as this will not be accepted.
