Spectacular free fireworks extravaganzas return to Clacton Pier this
weekend to mark the start of the school summer holidays.

The first of five displays will take place at the end of the attraction
on Saturday night (July 22) around 9pm, subject to darkness.

There will be further events on Saturdays on July 29, August 5, 12, 19
as part of the pier’s largest ever annual programme.

Pier director Billy Ball said that the idea of fireworks for the summer
holidays was introduced a couple of years ago.

“It has proved very popular with residents able to watch them each week
and thousands of visitors having the chance to see them whenever they come to
Clacton,” he added.

“We put the displays on with the assistance of Dynamic Fireworks of
Colchester and this year they are in association with Year of the Pier 2023.”

In addition there will be further extravaganzas on Thursday August 24 as
part of the Clacton Airshow and three days later on Sunday August 27.

The final one of the year will take place on November 4 to celebrate Guy
