New Year's Eve celebrations help!

Hi everyone,

If anyone has any information on New Year's Eve fireworks celebrations in terms of location, time, etc I would be really grateful!

From Googling and on here I can see there have been past fireworks events on Bowness Pier; is this the case for 31st December 2011?

Any help would be great!

Thanks,

Alex

Hi, we are staying in Bowness over the new year, will there be fireworks over the lake on New Years Eve?

If so where would the best place be to watch them?

There isn't really a bad place. They have them from one of the hotels by the lake. We weren't very impressed by them. Don't expect a fantastic display. Although its still a nice way to see in the new year

We go down to the side of the Lake View (the carvery place) and stand outside there with some flasks of whatever takes our fancy :) there are a few hotels that put on fireworks which you can watch from there, it's a lovely atmosphere, then lots of people (including us) in Bowness set off some chinese lanterns when the fireworks are done, it's a lovely way to see in the New Year.

I hate to be a party pooper, but please just stick to the fireworks and don't be tempted to use Chinese lanterns. They can cause real harm to animals. See:

We are going to the Low wood hotel again, it was fantastic this year, can't wait as the theme is a BIG secret
