The crowds will start to build from 7.30pm with the first fireworks fired at approximately 8.30pm

Whilst the famous Blackpool illuminations light up the whole of Blackpool Promenade, these amazing fireworks displays which are choreographed to music will light up the skies.

Getting to the Event

Traffic builds early and roads into Blackpool get very busy due to the sheer volume of traffic – Public transport is recommended.

If you are wishing to travel by car, visitors are advised to park n the southern car parks and use the trams to travel directly to the event.

The fireworks are fired from the North Pier – so for some of the best views of the displays – book your seats at the Viva Vegas Diner & Bar

Please remember all displays are subject to weather conditions, things could change at the last minute.
