I don’t know about you but I love Bonfire Night. I love just going to watch firework shows!! I always find it a struggle to find what’s going on so thought I’d share some of the one’s I know about in South Wales and some things we’ve done before!
One I’ve heard the most about but I’m still yet to make and won’t be able to this year either is Sparks in the Park. This is held in Bute Park behind Cardiff Castle and is on 7th Nov this year. Tickets are available online for it. It’s meant to be such an amazing show one year I’ll make it.
Caerphilly Castle is another great display which is being held on 31st Nov. Another one I won’t be able to make. If you really love fireworks you could go to both of these. This is a free one!
Ponty Big Bang is one I used to go to when I was in university! It’s on the 1st Nov in Ynysangharad War Memorial Park Pontypridd. It’s a ticketed event which can be bought beforehand from.
Newport is bringing back it’s display to Rodney Parade for the first time in 10 years. This one is being held on 5th Nov. Tickets for this one can be bought from Rodney Parade Office.
Swansea Bonfire Night Party is being held in St Helens Ground on 5th Nov. This sounds like a great event and has music as well.
So that’s some of the official firework displays. The last few years I’ve been up to Caerphilly Mountain on Bonfire night to eat the AMAZING Caerphilly mountain snack bar burgers and watch all the smaller firework displays across the valleys!
Are you going to watch fireworks this year? Does anyone know if there are any in Cardiff Bay?
