FIREWORKS will light up the sky above East Lothian over four days this weekend.

Eight displays are taking place across the county, with two tomorrow evening (Friday).

The Fa’side Family Fireworks take place in Tranent’s Polson Park.

Arrive at 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

The display is free but donations are welcome.

There will be light-up toys on offer to raise funds for next year’s display.

There is pedestrian access only – so attendees are urged to use the main gate.

On the same night, at the other end of the county, there is a fireworks display in Dunbar.

Head along to Hallhill, with the gates opening at 6.15pm.

Entry is £2 for adults and £1 for children (5-plus), with the display getting under way at 7pm.

All proceeds go to local causes.

Saturday night is fireworks night in Haddington.

Volunteers have been urged to come forward for the event and can get in touch with Haddington Fireworks on Facebook or Twitter.

An impressive aerial display is being planned by the fireworks committee of Haddington Events Group.

Lorraine Dickson, from the fireworks group, said: “We are looking for volunteers to man the gates with our buckets to collect money for the event.

“We ask them to be there for a couple of hours from 6pm, when we have a safety meeting, till about 8.15pm or 8.30pm.

“We also need volunteers to mingle and walk about the field and be points of contact for anybody needing information.

“We also need volunteers for the torchlight procession, which leaves the Corn Exchange at 6.30pm and heads to Whittingehame Drive.”

Gates open at Whittingehame Drive at 6.30pm, with the bonfire being lit half an hour later.

Then, at 7.30pm, the fireworks display will get under way, with food vendors on the site and glow-in-the-dark objects for sale.

Then on Sunday, events take place in Aberlady, Humbie, and Cockenzie and Port Seton.

Aberlady fireworks display takes place at Foxhills Field, next to Craigielaw Cottages.

The event is sponsored by Wemyss and March Estate and Cruden Homes. Gates open at 5pm, with the bonfire lit at 6pm and fireworks getting under way at 6.30pm.

Tickets are available from Gosford Bothy Farm Shop, Aberlady Post Office, Aberlady Village Store, Gullane Barbers, and Haddington Wine and Whiskies.

In Humbie, the bonfire takes place at Muirpark Field.

Sausages, homemade soup, mulled wine, cakes and more will all be on offer from 4.15pm.

Cockenzie and Port Seton’s fireworks display comes with a difference.

The village will host a ‘partially quiet’ fireworks display, after initially investigating the idea of silent fireworks.

The display takes place at 7.30pm at the Links and a large crowd is expected.

On Monday, Guy Fawkes Night, attention turns to Musselburgh and North Berwick.

Two foodbanks will be the recipients donations at this year’s community fireworks display in Musselburgh.

The East Lothian Foodbank and Musselburgh Basics Bank have been chosen to be the charity fundraisers this year.

The Basics Bank at Musselburgh Baptist Church in New Street is always open on the night of the fireworks, serving tea and coffee, welcoming passers by and joining in with the spectacle.

The fireworks display takes place at Fisherrow Links at 7pm and is funded by Musselburgh Common Good Fund.

And in North Berwick, East Lothian Yacht Club hosts a fireworks display for the community at North Berwick Harbour. The show, which begins at 7.30pm, is a long-running tradition within the town. The event has been approved by the East Lothian Strategic Safety Group.

For health and safety reasons, organisers ask that spectators do not bring their own fireworks to the event. This includes sparklers.

The fireworks display is funded by donations and a grant from North Berwick Community Council. Volunteers will be armed with buckets to collect donations during the event. The yacht club bar will be open to members, family and friends on the night.
