We are big fans of fireworks in the UK, but did you know that we had some fabulous firework events here in Paisley? We love any excuse to host a spectacular show in and around our town, whether it’s for Bonfire Night or another occasion during the year, so we thought we would put together a post to help you plan your next visit to a display. If you were looking for the best events for fireworks, you have come to the right place!

Paisley Fireworks Spectacular

To celebrate Bonfire Night in style, you can join us in Paisley town centre for a dazzling display that kickstarts the season of winter events. Make sure you wrap up warm in a hat, scarf, and gloves to watch as an array of rockets, fountains, Catherine wheels, and sparklers light up the dark night air. Set against the backdrop of Paisley Abbey, this truly is an event to remember and perfect for the whole family. With live music, food and more, this is a great event to be a part of the Bonfire Night celebrations, as well as to kick off the schedule of winter events.

Paisley Halloween Festival

Fancy watching a fireworks display with a bit of a difference? You might love the Paisley Halloween Festival. This sensationally spooky fiesta runs over a number of days with a whole host of activities, sights to be seen, and of course, fireworks. You will be able to watch street performers, get involved in pumpkin carving, listen to some live music, and maybe even visit the silent disco. There are tons of things to see and do, and it all wraps up with a fireworks show, so if you want something different from the typical Bonfire Night display, the Halloween Festival is for you.

Renfrew Christmas Light Switch On

Christmas is the perfect time to add a little sparkle into the sky with the help of some fireworks. In nearby Renfrew, thousands of people gather at Christmas to see the seasonal spectacular light switch on, which is complete with a magical fireworks display. The lights and fireworks are accompanied by live music and guest appearances, all set against the town hall, which provides a striking background for the event. Once the fireworks are over, you can get involved with Christmas crafts, face painters, balloon modelling, funfair rides, a carol service and so much more. This is a fantastic way to ring in the festive season!

As well as these incredible displays and festivals, there are a huge range of other firework shows to see in and around Paisley, both for Bonfire Night and other occasions. You may be able to catch one of the charity displays by the Round Table, which features a giant bonfire and plenty of food, or the Lions Club.
