THE “best bonfire and fireworks display for miles” is set to light the skies up above Alloa next month.

Alloa Round Table is once again organising its Sparks in the Park event for Bonfire Night with the family fun set to go ahead after dark on Saturday, November 3.

There will be live music, a fun fair, hot food and drink as well as a fireworks display with Wee County school children hard at work to create Guy Fawkes effigies for the bonfire.

Nominations for a person to push the big red button, who will appear on stage with headline act Donchez Dacres for a selfie and to set off the “show stopping” pyrotechnics, are also being sought on the Sparks in the Park Facebook pages.

Organisers are looking for someone from the community who inspires others, has achieved amazing feats or just deserves a special experience.

The event is set to take place at the West End Park with babies and buggies going for free.

Children’s tickets are priced at £3 with adults gaining entry for £4.

The Round Table will use all the funds to help good causes and deserving individuals in the Wee County.

Sophie Johnson, DualStar, Keiran Fisher, Pretty and Pink will also perform to the crowd on the night.

Headliner Donchez Dacres will be familiar to fans of Britain’s Got Talent after he bagged a Golden Buzzer in series 12 and earned third place.

The fun in the park, where everyone can get their hands on a glowstick, will kick off around 6pm with the fireworks going up at around 7.30pm.

John O’Malley, from organisers Alloa Round Table, told the Advertiser: “I managed to get all the local schools involved in making Guys for the bonfire.

“So, we’ve got a little competition going on amongst the schools and whoever gets voted the best will get to go to the top of the bonfire.

“However, all the Guys will make the bonfire and the schools have been great in supporting us in that as well, it just gets a little bit more of a buzz about the place.”

Organisers are expecting a cold one and are advising everyone to wrap up warm.

To avoid issues with parking and traffic jams, people are kindly being asked to leave their vehicles in nearby car parks and take a short walk, rather than aiming for a spot as close as possible.

John added: “Alloa fireworks has really grown and it’s such a big attraction each year now; it’s the main firework event in our smaller central Scotland area.

“Every year, it just keeps getting better and better.”

Online tickets are also being trialled this year with family savings, follow the Sparks in the Park Facebook page for details.
