Firework Championships 2017
The Illuminations light up the promenade, and the Fireworks light up the sky high above Blackpool thanks to this FREE annual event, held centrally on Blackpool promenade at Tower Festival Headland, with great views to be had along the whole of Blackpool seafront.
If you live locally it's a great chance to come into town in the evening and enjoy a stroll in the still warm evening air before autumn sets in, and a bag of chips with a disposable fork - they taste so much better that way!
If you fancy visiting Blackpool for a short stay why don't you make the Fireworks Championships the weekend when you come to visit? There's so much to see and do, whatever the weather, you can be sure of a great time.
* Build up from 7.30pm and shows starting at 8.30pm.
* All displays subject to suitable weather conditions.
If you are travelling into Blackpool to enjoy this event please leave extra time for travel, as this is a popular event and there may be traffic delays when arriving/leaving.
You're advised to use car parks at the south of the resort and the tramway to travel to the event. Public transport via the rail systems and buses is also recommended.
