LLANDUDNO's fireworks annual display went off with a bang at the town's North Shore and closed with the most spectacular finale yet. 

The annual free event, hosted by Llandudno Town Council, took place on Sunday, October 29. 

Despite the annual commemoration of Guy Fawkes Night being observed on November 5, it has become a tradition for Llandudno to hold its event in October. 

This is due to the beach event being very tide dependent.

Thousands flocked to the dazzling display which started shortly after 5.30pm and lasted 20 minutes.

The finale saw huge blossoms of vibrantly coloured fireworks paint the dark skies. Fireworks jetted into the sky continuously. The finale was met with 'oooohs, ahhhhs and wows' as well as a round of rapturous applause. 

Ahead of the event, a spokesperson from Llandudno Town Council said: "This beach event is very tide dependent, with at least an hour being required in advance of the display to safely set up on the beach (at around 150 metres from the promenade) and a suitable time following the approximate 20-minute display to safely remove equipment from the beach.

"Tides and operating times are, therefore, carefully, and thoroughly assessed.

"In 2023, these are the closest dates to the November 5 at which the tide time and range is most favourable and safe to operate.

"We are very proud to provide one of the best fireworks displays on the North Wales Coast for our residents, visitors and the local economy and this year's display promises to be a spectacular display.

"We would like to thank Mr Adam Williams of Llandudno Pier for his generous support in providing all the machinery and manpower to ensure the event goes ahead and to Conwy County Borough Council for their support.

"This major event couldn’t proceed without the strong partnership between the Town Council, Adam Williams and Conwy County Borough Council."

After the event, Llandudno Pier posted on social media: "Fair to say that was something else."
