Due to the popularity of the World Fireworks Championship Blackpool, there may be traffic delays arriving and leaving the event.  Take extra time to arrive and we would recommend if travelling by car to park in the southern car parks and use the tramway to travel to the event.  Alternative public transport via the rail systems and buses are also recommended.
