So where is the best place to go this year? Westonsupermarepeople has put together a fireworks guide of displays that are happening locally so you know where to go.
Thousands of visitors are expected to enjoy a night of fireworks and fun at the Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare on Saturday 5th November.
People who come along will be able to watch a large firework display on the beach from the comfort of the new giant Grand Pier conservatory on the South Deck and enjoy the rides.
Visitors who pay a £5 admission fee will receive a free £5 Grand Pier ride voucher and visitors to pay a £10 admission fee will receive a free £10 ride voucher, plus a burger or hot dog.
Grand Pier owner Kerry Michael said: "I am looking forward to watching the Grand Pier firework display from the new conservatory.
"We can give people a warm and dry vantage point, with a spectacular view, which on a cold November night is something unique.
"Our rides will be open all evening so it should be a fireworks and fun evening for everyone".
