- Platt Fields and Heaton Park did not display firework
- The Events were FREE to attend
The local community braved the cold weather for to celebrate bonfire night.
The event took place at prince’s park in Salford .There were free tickets for residents and outsiders. There were different stands for refreshments and games, although it was crowded, it was not noticeable because people were enjoying the Fire Walk in the park, displays of fireworks views, music and fireworks display.
Young children and families had fun too on the playground spinner, and also got few toys from the stands. A lot of memories were created that day, families and friends took pictures and videos. It was getting too cold and dark so everyone decided to leave which caused a long traffic, cars and buses were all stuck.
Colette Burgess, an entertainment fan, and a content creator, was also present at the event said: “Bonfire night is my autumn celebration and always has been. I have fond childhood memories of being bundled up in two pairs of trousers and leg warmers, holding sparklers in mitten clad hands at the village bonfire. I’ve always loved fireworks though I’m absolutely terrified of them and could never light one myself – those firework safety lessons did a number on me that’s for sure so I’m always keen to go to an organised fireworks display rather than have them in my own back garden.”
The event was one of several planned by Manchester City Council Fireworks displays was announced across all ten local boroughs, offering everything from live music and funfairs to delicious food and drinks. But some areas have not put on display this year due to costs.
Councillors from Patt field and Heaton Park Council leaders announced they won’t be part of this display this year due to rising costs. Other parts of greater Manchester like Bolton,Trafford and Bury also announced cut backs
Lee Ann Igbon from Hulme, told the Manchester world News:”As Halloween and bonfire night approach, we want to remind residents that council-organised bonfire events will again not be taking place in our parks this year.”
