FIREWORKS will light up the sky above East Lothian over five days this week.

Eight displays are taking place across the county for Guy Fawkes Night, with the first two taking place this evening (Friday).

Dunbar’s fireworks display is held that evening at Hallhill Sports Centre.

Gates open at 6.15pm, with the display starting at 7pm.

Entry is £2 for an adult and £1 for children; all of the money raised will go to local good causes.

The event has been organised by the Dunbar and District Tablers, who thanked East Lothian Council and Haddington Hire Centre for their support.

Also today (Friday), there is a fireworks display in Tranent.

Being held at Polson Park, the public are encouraged to arrive from 6.30pm for a 7pm start. The event is free to attend, although donations are welcome.

Light-up toys are going to be on sale to help fundraise for next year’s display.

There is pedestrian access only, with attendees are urged to use the main gate.

Saturday is Haddington’s turn to host its fireworks spectacular.

The fireworks display at Cockenzie and Port Seton is being held at the site of the former Cockenzie Power Station.

The viewing area for the fireworks, which begin at 7pm, is on the grass verge between the station fencing and the B1348.

On Guy Fawkes Night itself on Tuesday, attention turns to Musselburgh and North Berwick.

Musselburgh’s fireworks display is being held at Fisherrow Links, starting at 7.30pm. The event is free to attend.

In North Berwick, East Lothian Yacht Club are the hosts once again.

The show, which is a long-running tradition in the town, is being held at the harbour as usual and begins at 7.30pm.

It is free to attend but volunteers will be armed with buckets to collect donations throughout – all donations are gratefully accepted.

The event is funded through donations and a grant from the town’s community council.

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

The yacht clubhouse and Seabird Centre will both be open on the night.
