There are two main places to watch the fireworks display. The first is on the promenade, where you can enjoy some hot doughnuts while listening to music from street performers. If you choose this option, make sure to get there early enough so that it doesn't become too crowded for you and your friends or family members. The second is from one of the many vantage points around Blackpool, people sit as far as Harrowside bridge where you can relax with a delicious kebab from Armenian.
