On Wed 1 Nov there's the Cringle Park display, while on Sat 4 Nov there's Crumpsall Park. Both are free with fireworks starting at 7.30pm, and funfairs to keep everyone entertained.
Head to Brookdale Park (Mon 30 Oct) for a display the weekend before the main cluster of events, there will be a funfair and fireworks starting at 7.30pm. Actual Guy Fawkes events can be enjoyed at Platt Fields Park (Sun 5 Nov), which is free and comes with the added bonus of food stalls.
