Halloween is over and it’s time for Manchester skies to light up with fireworks as the city celebrates Bonfire Night.
So put your Halloween costumes aside, gather your fireworks, and prepare to treat yourself with toffee apples, treacle toffee and parkin cake.
Remember, remember the fifth of November when Guy Fawkes was arrested for guarding explosives indented to blow up the House of Lords.
Community centres, parks and clubs are hosting a variety of bonfire events, funfair rides and firework displays for you and your family to enjoy.
Bonfire events require special care and caution. Make sure you and others, are safe by keeping a bucket of water nearby and wear protective eye wear if you are going to use any fireworks. Physical contact with fireworks can cause serious damage.
Keep your pets away during the bonfire night. They can get highly affected by the noise and lights. As a result of fear and stress, pets might experience behavioural problems, soiling of the home and running away. Keep them protected.
