Dunfermline Fireworks

Fireworks spectacular to return to Dunfermline with a bang

Dunfermline is set to celebrate with a bang as it prepares to welcome thousands of thrill-seekers to the beautiful Pittencrieff Park for the annual fireworks display.

Taking place on Saturday 8th November, the Superheroes-themed spectacular is set to be even bigger and better than ever before.

Funded by Fife Council and the BID levy, this year will include even more stunning fireworks synchronized to ear-popping music featuring some of the best-loved superheroes tunes including Batman, Spiderman, Superman and the Incredibles, to name but a few.

Kicking off at 6pm with the Kingdom FM roadshow, the public can also enjoy some great shopping, eating and entertainment during the day as Dunfermline shops, restaurants and bars gear up for what is expected to be a busy day.

Samba bands, pipe bands and atmospheric lighting will create a festival feel to the event, which has grown in reputation to become Fife’s best-loved fireworks displays.

Maggie Mitchell, Chief Executive of BID company Dunfermline Delivers said: “Our aim is to create a wonderful family day out packed with great shopping and dining offers. We are encouraging people to make a day of it by coming into Dunfermline and soaking up the atmosphere before heading to the Glen to enjoy a thrilling fireworks display!”

Councillor Helen Law, Chair of the City of Dunfermline area committee, added: “This year’s fireworks display promises to be the best yet and we’re delighted to be part of it.

“There’s a lot to see and do in Dunfermline so why not beat the rush, come along early and make the most of the day! Whatever you do, make sure you stay safe and above all, enjoy the fireworks!”

Police Scotland has issued a request that those attending do not bring their own fireworks, sparklers or Chinese lanterns.  Additionally, the public is strongly advised to consider public transport or park and ride options to avoid congestion.  

John Robertson from Police Scotland said: “Dunfermline is well connected with public transport with the train and bus station just five minutes walk to the Glen.  We are expecting lots of people that will inevitably lead to congestion entering and leaving the town.  Beat the queues and walk or take the bus or train.”  

The public is also reminded that volunteers will be collecting donations that go towards funding next year’s displays at all entrances to Pittencrieff Park.
