Communities set to strike a light for annual Fireworks season

Mulben display last year

The sky over Moray communities will be lit up when Portgordon’s famous firework display kicks off the season on Friday.

The annual Portgordon fireworks display has become something of a festival for the community with a funfair and stalls laid out and special transport running from Buckie to the village.

While starting from humble beginnings 21 years ago from a box of domestic fireworks, the 2014 event resumes the reputation Portgordon has built in producing one of the most professional displays in the region.

The professional display provided by Inverurie firm Fireworx Scotland is expected to last for over 20 minutes when the first rocket is lit at around 7.15pm.

A park and ride operation is being provided by Maynes Coaches from the Buckie Drifter car park from 6.30pm and will pick up passengers at Buckie Square five minutes later, then at Land Street around 6.40pm before stopping at Great Western Road on its way Portgordon.

The bus will return immediately after the Fireworks display at 8pm although the stalls and funfair will continue until 9pm.

Meanwhile another village community are set for their own display on November 9, when Mulben’s annual bonfire and fireworks display is to be held.

That commences at 6pm in Mains of Mulben when a Bar-b-q will also be held with teas, coffee and soup while the Spencer’s Funfair roundabout will be on hand to add further entertainment for the kids.
