Family Fun & Fireworks

31st October-6pm

As part of Fishguard Autumn Festival there will be a whole host of activities and entertainment going on as well as fireworks across the water on Goodwick Parrog. Don’t miss the fancy dress competition and the chance to ride on a vintage steam engine, or if you like something a little quieter, why not grab a hot dog and have your face painted whilst you wait for the fireworks? It’s bound to be spectacular reflecting in the water of the bay.

St Florence Bonfire and Firework Display

This event grows every year, and 2014 promises to be no different! With ‘The Houses of Parliament Gunpowder Plot’ as the theme the ‘biggest bonfire in Pembrokeshire’ promises to go off with a bang. Keep warm with soup and mulled cider and then dance the night away at the disco afterwards! Tickets are £2.50 for adults and £1 for children, and there’s a park and ride service available from the Manor House car park.

Rotary Club of Tenby Annual Bonfire & Firework Night

5th November- 6pm

This event is a favourite with locals and visitors alike, with the fairground rides proving very popular! Grab a hot chocolate to warm your fingertips and take a stroll around the stalls before grabbing a spot near the bonfire to watch the fireworks from. Perfect! Tickets are £4 for adults and £2 for children with discounted family tickets also available. 

Trewern Arms, Nevern Bonfire & Fireworks Night

5th November-7.30pm

Time to get the glue, glitter and sewing needles out because this event is well known for its ‘Best-dressed Guy Fawkes’ competition. Kicking off with the Judging at 7.30 you can then enjoy a glass of something warming and a pork roll before the fireworks display later on. Fingers crossed your Guy wins.
