Bolton Council bosses say they have been working with the police as they run their "Operation Treacle" to crack down on anti-social behaviour during the Halloween and Bonfire Night period.
Cllr Nick Peel, the council's executive cabinet member for the environment, said: “We hope everyone is able to enjoy the festivities in a safe and responsible manner. It’s important to remember that fireworks can be dangerous.
“There are plenty of organised displays for people to enjoy across the borough and I hope everyone has a good time.”
