Sandown Fireworks rescheduled for New Year's Day

If you're planning to take a short break on the Isle of Wight this winter, make sure you coincide your trip with the rescheduled Sandown Fireworks event. 

Originally due to take place in November but postponed because of high winds, the incredible show will now wow visitors to the island on New Year's Day at 6pm to mark the start of Sandown Carnival's 125th anniversary year. 

As well as fireworks from the pier, there will be entertainment taking place from 5pm, so make sure you get there early to enjoy the full experience. 

Best of all, the event is entirely free, although donations towards the running costs are appreciated.

Sandown Pier has an even longer history than the carnival, having been erected in 1879. Open all year round, the pier has a helter skelter, spinning teacups and bumper cars, as well as an indoor arcade for when the weather is less than ideal.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801669383-ADNFCR
