Firework fans asked to walk to Bught Park in Inverness for Highland Council event
SET off early and walk to Bught Park is the advice of the organisers of the Inverness’s main bonfire and fireworks display.
Around 15,000 spectators are expected to assemble for the Highland Council’s annual event tomorrow.
It is set to be 4-5 degrees with a low chance of rain.
Gates open at 5.30pm with access to a catering village and funfair.
The entertainment around the giant bonfire will start at 7pm with the arrival of mascots to entertain families.
Organisers want as many people as possible to park away from the area or walk to the event.
Councillor Ian Brown, part of the organising group, said: “We are so grateful to everybody who helped us by leaving their cars in the city centre car parks and walking to the show last year.
“As well as delivering a spectacular fireworks display for everybody to enjoy; we have to ensure that we look after everybody in the area on the night.
“With the ice rink, leisure centre and rugby club open as usual, we are repeating our appeal for everybody coming to our show to help us by parking away from the site.
“It really is appreciated and we look forward to sharing a memorable and enjoyable evening with everybody.”
The bonfire will be lit by Inverness Provost Helen Carmichael at 7.30pm.
The bonfire is constructed by the council’s community services team and is one of the largest in Scotland each year.
