Families in Weymouth are being invited to fireworks display along the seafront to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night next Monday (5th November 2012).

The event runs all afternoon from 2pm with loads of stuff for children including a fun fair in the Pavilion Forecourt and stalls along the seafront including a competition.

From 6pm visitors to Weymouth Big Bonfire Night will also get a unique opportunity to view Floodlit Freestyle windsurfing in Weymouth Bay.

A massive beach bonfire will be lit on the beach followed by a fireworks display from 7pm.

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council Head of Tourism & Events Matt Ryan said: "Weymouth's Big Guy Fawkes event is always a fun occasion packed with excited faces creating a fabulous atmosphere. The seafront is sure to be buzzing with children of all ages sharing this great British tradition with family and friends in a safe environment.
"Weymouth and Portland's build up to the festive season will soon be in full swing including switching on of the towns Christmas lights, Christmas Sparkle, Chase the Pudding, Christmas Day Harbour Swim and of course not forgetting the Pantomime Jack and the Beanstalk at the Weymouth Pavilion Theatre."
