From 4.30pm to 8.00pm food outlets will be open at the Watersports Centre concourse, with music playing in the area. A bonfire will be lit at 5.30pm.
The firework display can be seen from locations around the park. Solar lights line the edges of some of paths around the park to guide visitors.
There will be no funfair at the Watersports Centre but M&Ds Scotland’s Theme Park will be open for business as usual from 10.00am to 10.00pm with a special online wristband offer, and two food outlets will be located at the foreshore car park.
The event is expected to be very busy and there is limited parking within the park, so the advice is:
- arrive early and enjoy the food and music
- travel to the park by public transport, or
- park further from the park and walk.
