The area’s biggest free fireworks display, Fawkes in the Walks, attracted thousands of people to The Walks in King’s Lynn on Friday 1 November 2019.
The 15 minute display, organised by the Borough Council of King's Lynn & West Norfolk, was preceded by the Mayor of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk, Cllr Geoff Hipperson, lighting the bonfire and live music from The Chebbs. There were also 22 fairground rides to enjoy and 9 food stalls. The fireworks lit up the sky, after a slight delay due to a medical emergency, at 8:15pm.
Cllr Elizabeth Nockolds, borough council deputy leader and cabinet member for culture, heritage and health, said: “Fawkes in The Walks was as spectacular as ever. Despite the drizzle, thousands of people came to watch the entertainment and display. I look forward to its return next year.”
2,500 fireworks made up the display. 30 volunteers from King's Lynn Parkrun helped litter pick and clear up the Walks on Saturday morning.
Throughout the evening many people shared pictures of the event on social media. Snapchat had 21,000 views of the Fawkes in the Walks filter that was available during the night.
