2017 Fireballs Ceremony going ahead

The traditional fireball ceremony to mark the start of 2017 will be going ahead as planned.

"Open Air in the Square " has been cancelled, but that is an entirely separate event which is not organised by the Stonehaven Fireballs Association.

Crowds will be gathering in the High Street from around 10.30pm on the 31st December 2016, ready for the parade of fireballs swingers that starts on the bells at midnight to welcome in the new year.

The Stonehaven Fireballs ceremony is an open spectator event and no tickets are required. Visitors are advised to arrive early to get parked and enter the arena in case we reach maximum capacity. Although there is no entry fee, donations are most welcome to help with the annual running costs of staging this event.
