A grand fireworks display will officially start the Bridgwater Carnival 2012 weekend celebrations in the town tonight.

The spectacular carnival curtain-raiser will light up the sky above St Matthew’s Field from 7.30pm this evening.

Entertainment will be laid on in the field from 3pm this afternoon, with fairground rides and refreshments all making for a fun family afternoon out.

The fireworks display, to be laid on by Skyburst Fireworks, is always a popular event and is expected to draw huge crowds this evening.

Carnival publicity officer Dave Stokes said: “It is terrific news that Bridgwater Town Council is once again sponsoring this year’s fireworks display, and it will get the town in the mood for what is to come the following night.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Bridgwater Town Council and Sedgemoor District Council for their continued generosity. If it wasn’t for the help we receive from local authorities, organisations and companies, our carnival would not be as popular as it is.”

Car parking for tonight's event is available at St Matthew’s Field for £4 per car, or £5 with a souvenir procession programme. All proceeds raised will go towards the Bridgwater Carnival charity.
