Hollywood theme for New Brighton fireworks

The Treetech Fireworks Spectacular display at the New Brighton Pier will take place on November 1.

And this year's theme is Hollywood blockbusters. 

Traditionally the event has taken place on November 5, Guy Fawkes night. 

But last year the city council made the decision to shift the event to a Friday night so that families could enjoy the event without having to rush home afterwards because of school commitments the next day.

“We’re sticking to that formula again this year so people need to save the date, Friday 1 November in their calendar because that’s when the sky above New Brighton will light up with the most amazing display of fireworks,’’ said city council events and arts manager Lucy Blackmore.

More details will be released closer to the time.
