DONCASTER skies are set to dazzle when a sporting venue gets Halloween celebrations underway with a firework display and free entertainment this month.
Doncaster Racecourse is set to get into the spooky spirit at Fireworks Spectacular on Saturday, October 31, and will kick-start its early Bonfire celebrations with a firework display set to wow the crowds.
Supported by Hallam FM, the Town Moor event will feature free entertainment for all of the family including a special appearance from children’s entertainer, Mr Dan, who will be performing his circus workshop and offering children the chance to spin plates and walk a tightrope.
The evening will also include an early bird offer of £1 on all small fairground rides, kids’ disco, indoor bouncy castles, Halloween fancy dress and colouring competitions, fire tricksters, face painters, jugglers, stilt walkers and much more.
Kieran Gallagher, executive director at Doncaster Racecourse, said: “This year, we are kicking off our Bonfire celebrations a little earlier than usual to offer guests a spectacular family-friendly evening including lots of free entertainment.
“The event will be a first for the region so we are expecting families of all ages through the doors to enjoy a stunning fireworks display. I urge those who wish to attend but haven’t yet purchased a ticket to do so in advance to avoid disappointment or queuing on the night.
“We are keen that the evening runs as smoothly as possible and we have adjusted the fireworks firing position to cater for all weather conditions following advice from our health and safety experts. This new position will minimise the likelihood of weather-related disruption and allow spectators to enjoy a spectacular display in front of the grandstand viewing areas.
“People are also encouraged to use public transport and shuttle buses will be available. However, the racecourse does have extensive parking for those who need to travel by car.”
The event starts at 5:30pm with a limited number of £5 family tickets available from Hallam FM website. For full details of the event, timings and further information please visit Doncaster Racecourse website www.doncaster-racecourse.co.uk
