The free weekly displays continue in Skegness for the next two Fridays.

Next Friday’s display at 10pm, is ahead of Skegness Summer festival and Carnival Week.

Until recent years, fireworks were a traditional part of the peak holiday season, with displays held around the boating lake area.

Visit Lincs Coast have re-introduced them along the coast and are also hosting displays every Sunday at Mablethorpe until August 19.
