BROOK Park will host a huge bonfire and free fireworks display on November 8.

Volunteers have completed a major makeover of the park and walking tracks.

The redevelopment includes signage and information boards, new track markers, post and rail fencing, maintenance work in the arboretum, bush and woodlots and improvements to the barbecue and picnic area.


Starting in the late afternoon, the November 8 event is seen as a summer relaunch by Brook Park’s volunteer management committee.

Chairman Guy Whitaker says the professional pyrotechnics display will be the biggest and best Te Kuiti has ever seen.

“The park is looking great after a lot of hard work and the free Guy Fawkes event will be a good opportunity for families to come out, take a look around the park and have some fun.

Plans are underway for barbecues and hot dog stalls, live music, and competitions.

“Come down in the late afternoon, have a walk round the park with your family, get something to eat, enjoy the music, bonfire and fireworks.”

Mr Whitaker says the Guy Fawkes night at Brook Park will be a “top family event” made possible by the support of local businesses.
