Salford’s skies will be lighting up for Bonfire Night with three free, family events
On Thursday November 3 there’s a free bonfire party in Princes Park, Irlam. The funfair opens at 5pm, the bonfire will be lit at 7pm and the firework show starts at 7.30pm.
On Friday November 4, On the Shoulders of Giants is a community lantern parade and firework show in Ordsall.
The event is inspired by Salford Trades Council celebrating the 150th anniversary of their first meeting at the Three Crowns Pub in Salford in November 1866 and their continuing community activism today.
The parade starts at Ordsall Community Arts on Robert Hall Street at 6.30pm and finishes with a 15 minute firework show at Ordsall Park, Craven Drive at 7.15pm.
And on Saturday November 5 at Buile Hill Park, Eccles Old Road, the annual bonfire and fireworks spectacular organised by Salford City Council takes place.
The fun starts with a funfair at 5pm, the bonfire will be lit by Ceremonial Mayor Councillor Karen Garrido at 7pm and the fireworks are at 7.30pm.
Councillor David Lancaster, lead member for environment and community safety, said: “Going to an organised display is the safest way to enjoy Bonfire Night so I hope everyone will enjoy these events.”
