Spectacle in Aberdeens FIREWORKS


The display, which has been missing from the calendar for the past two years due to COVID-19 restrictions, is typically attended by more than 10,000 people, and its return will be the first event in Aberdeen’s 2022 Winter Festival programme.
The free event, organised by Aberdeen City Council and hosted by Northsound 1’s Jeff and Lauren in the Morning, will include fire jugglers and a charity firewalk, provided by Inspire, from 7 pm, with the main fireworks display at 8 pm.
Created by Fireworx Scotland, the display promises to dazzle crowds and entertain young and old with this year’s theme of Music Through the Decades, with attendees invited to listen to songs from their favourite era.
Aberdeen City Council Co-leader, Councillor Alex Nicoll, said: “We are keenly anticipating the return of the fireworks display at the Beach Boulevard this year.

A Night of Dazzling Lights

“The event has proven extremely popular with families and people of all generations over the years, and it will be exciting for the public to experience the fantastic display that Fireworx Scotland has put together.”
Park and Ride buses, provided by Stagecoach, will be available from Bridge Don, Kingswells, and Souter Head Road at Aberdeen Altens Hotel (formerly Altens Thistle Hotel) to bring people to and from the event. Return travel is available for £3 for adults, £1.50 for children and £7 for a family ticket for up to 2 adults and three children.
People should not bring alcohol, fireworks, or sparklers to the display. We also ask that people refrain from bringing large bags to the event and note that bag searches will occur on arrival.
Independence Day is quickly approaching, so it’s time to fire up that barbecue and discover what Fourth of July pyrotechnics and festivities are happening in and around Matawan-Aberdeen for 2023.

Aberdeen’s Fireworks Gala

We gathered all the fireworks shows, parades and festivals happening in and around Matawan-Aberdeen, so you can start planning now.
Aberdeen’s Independence Day celebration will be Saturday, July 1. As it is every year, the celebration will go from 5–9 pm at Veterans Memorial Park on Raritan Bay. The rain date is July 8.
Aberdeen Twp. says 2023 will be their biggest year yet: Live Music will be provided by local band Str8 UP, who will play from 5:30 – 7:30 pm. The Veterans Park spray park will be open, and the good times will be rolling.
There will be Bounce houses, Marvel superheroes, a DJ before and after the live band and three face painters. The beautiful Veterans Memorial Park spray park will be open until 8 pm for the little and big ones. The fireworks will go off at 9 pm when it gets dark.
Ocean Boulevard will be slammed to vehicular traffic starting at 4 pm that day. Only handicapped vehicles can access (from the Old Bridge side).
Shuttle buses will leave at 5 pm from the LA Fitness parking lot and back and forth to the beach until the night’s end. It is highly recommended to park at the LA Fitness parking lot as it will be much easier to park there and less crowded.
Food trucks booked for that day:
Cousins Maine Lobsters, Big John’s Gourmet Burgers, Debbie O’s Concessions, Aloha Tropical Bowls, Sweet Pepper Empanadas Express, Firehouse Dogs, Pie Oh My Wood Fired Pizza and Mr. Softee ice cream truck.

Sunday was a little of a holiday for the Aberdeen Rural Fire Department.

The department responded to eight fires, all of which were fireworks-related, said Chief Mark Stokes.
That was after a couple of calls on Saturday that also had to do with fireworks.
Sunday, the calls started at 12:56 pm and went into the early morning hours of Monday.
The most significant fire was reported at 1:36 pm near 135th Street and 382nd Avenue. Stokes said it burnt 106 acres, including some soybeans, about 30 hay bales and some land enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program.
“It was spreading very fast,” he said of the fire about 4 miles west and 1 mile south of Marlin’s restaurant and truck stop.
The Warner, Stratford and Ipswich fire departments helped extinguish the flames, and TDO Farms assisted with water and a disc. One other local farmer also helped out, Stokes said.
Stoks said he knew some fires would be reported, but there were more than expected. By the time it was 8 or 9 at night, firefighters decided they would stay at the rural fire hall just south of town between calls.
Mother Nature was no help as the high temperature was just shy of 100, it was breezy, and there was no sign of rain.
