So that’s Halloween over for another year. Next stop – fireworks and bonfires. Here are 14 events happening in and around Cardiff from Friday through to Monday. Please do add details of any I’ve missed in the comments below, on the Cardiff Mummy Says Facebook page, or you can tweet me on @cardiffmummmy
If you are wondering why there are more than 14… it’s thanks to followers on my Facebook page who have posted details of other events so I’ve added those in.
All events are subject to change and cancellation so do check ahead to avoid disappointment. Most organised fireworks displays don’t allow sparklers on site so again check ahead – and stay safe.
