Thousands turn out for Paisley’s Fireworks Spectacular

More than 16,000 turned out in Paisley town centre on Saturday night, 2 November, to watch a dazzling display of fireworks be set off against the backdrop of the iconic Abbey.

The crowd wrapped up in the thickest woollies to watch the magnificent array of Catherine wheels, rockets and sparklers on display backed by a soundtrack of popular 90s classic hits.

The event started welcoming crowds with music and banter at 6.30pm before the main event at 7.00pm. Pictures show Saturday night’s colourful display of fireworks.
