Friday 24th June

We appreciate that loud fireworks are not for everybody, so we are trialling a significantly quieter firework display for Mazey Eve – Friday 24th June - this year.

The display will still light up the night sky over Penzance Harbour for our town’s annual celebration of summer and the Feast of St John – the patron saint of Penzance.

We know that many people still love to hear the bangs, so the last three minutes of the 11.5 minutes display will use traditional fireworks.

Kindly supported by Penzance Council.

We hope you are all looking forward to seeing the bright parades, dancing the Serpent Dance to the sound of the Golowan Band and being merry in the streets of Penzance again. We certainly are!
