ONE of the largest free firework displays in Hertfordshire for Bonfire Night 2013 will take place in Watford.
Cassiobury Park’s annual fireworks and bonfire will take place on Saturday, November 2.
Organised and financially backed by Watford Borough Council, with the support of the Lions Club of Watford, the event starts at 6pm, with a six-minute children’s firework display at 6.15pm.
Following entertainment on stage, the bonfire will be lit at 7pm and the main fireworks – a spectacular 19-minute display – will commence at 7.30pm.
Watford’s Vibe 107.6FM will be compering the event.
There are no ground level fireworks in the main display. All fireworks will reach a minimum of 100 feet, with the best view from within the main event arena between the stage and the bonfire.
No fireworks or sparklers are allowed in the park.
Parking restrictions will be in place on the south side of Cassiobury Park from 7am to 11pm to enable emergency vehicle access to the event.
The best place to park is in any of the public car parks around the town centre.
Although this event is free of charge, organisers ask for a donation towards the cost of putting on the display and towards supporting local charities.
