Fireworks Night on the Stray
Redcar's Fireworks Night will switch to The Stray for a sparkling display on Sunday, November 5, starting at 6.30pm.
The 30-minute extravaganza, between Redcar and Marske, will mean the Coast Road will be closed to traffic from the Zetland Park roundabout at Redcar to the roundabout at Marske from around 5pm to at least 30 minutes afterwards.
Organisers will be setting off the fireworks from the grassed area near the car park close to the Redcar Stray toilets, firing over the sea.
Huge new effects are planned, with fireworks rising to 1,800 feet and spraying as wide as 1,200 feet, building to a spectacular finale.
Spectators will be guided to two viewing areas either side of the firing zone, accessed from either Redcar or Marske.
Three 26-seater buses start a free shuttle service from the Majuba Road car park at 5pm until 6.15pm, with one free bus operating during the same times from the car park opposite Marske library. Return journeys will start at 7.15pm until 8pm.
Parking will be available in the usual town centre car parks.
