Guy Fawkes Day 2016: Municipality has designated these areas for fireworks
With Guy Fawkes Day, Saturday, 5 November, just around the corner, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality would like to remind residents of the designated areas where fireworks can be legally discharged between 18:00 and 21:00 on Saturday night.
"Fireworks are potentially dangerous and the indiscriminate discharging thereof is irritating to others and experienced as traumatic by animals. Every year, cases are reported of terrified pets scaling walls and getting lost, maimed or killed on our roads," the municipality warned.
"The Municipality advises residents who are pet owners to preferably keep their pets indoors or at least locked up over the period, and to constantly monitor their condition."
On Saturday evening, the Municipality will allow residents to discharge fireworks for a three-hour period only, namely between 18:00 to 21:00 and in the following designated open areas and beach areas only:
1) Fireworks can be discharged in the following areas:
i) Open area between Lovebird Street & Tiryville.
