Watford Fireworks Spectacular returns
Watford Borough Council have announced that the town’s FREE annual fireworks spectacular will be returning to Cassiobury Park on Saturday 6 November.
The fireworks display – the largest in Hertfordshire and one Watford’s most well attended events – brings diverse communities together to enjoy the stunning entertainment in the sky. The lifting of restrictions and return of outdoor events, with Covid-safe measures being put in place, will ensure the event can go ahead safely after the 2020 event had to be cancelled due the pandemic.
The event which normally takes places every year will be supported by Watford community radio station Vibe 107.6FM, who compère the stage. Entertainment will start at 6pm, with live performances from music act Katie Plus Juan. The 20-minute firework display will be starting at 7.30pm and there will be a variety of food and drink outlets, children’s funfair rides and bungee trampolines.
Volunteers from the Lions Club of Watford and Rotary Club of Watford will be there on the night, so please do give generously. They will be collecting on behalf of local charities.
The Cassiobury Fireworks display will be its usual size, but preparations will be a bit different with a more cautious approach to provide a COVID-safe event. There are measures being put in place to reduce congestion and touch points at the event.
Attendees are also being encouraged to; arrive in plenty of time to avoid congestion in the park, take a rapid Covid test the day before the event, stay at home if they have any symptoms and wear a face covering if they are in close proximity with people they don’t normally meet with.
There will be no parking in the Gade Avenue car park from 3pm on Saturday 6 November, apart from a limited number of blue badge spaces and these will be available on a first come first served basis. There are also parking restrictions on nearby roads from 7am to 11pm, so if possible please park in one of the town centre car parks or walk to the park.
To keep everyone safe, visitors will not be allowed to bring sparklers, fireworks or alcohol into the park. For more information, please visit watfordbigevents.co.uk.
