Enjoy our World Fireworks Competition photos and get a sense of the event from them. It’s a wonderful atmosphere, when everywhere is busy. It’s popular with families, young and old people. Everyone enjoys the evening.

On the first three Friday nights, different countries show off their world class firework skills. On the fourth and final Friday there’s a UK display and the winner is announced.

Fireworks are let off from North Pier, so you get a great view from the whole of the seafront.

The photos in this album were taken a few years ago. How can you tell that they aren’t new? The clue is the Blackpool Tower! In these photos it’s still wrapped in scaffolding – the renovation is now complete.
