Lantern Parade

School Lantern Procession

Every year one of the highlights of the event is the procession of lanterns. The lanterns are made and decorated by the children themselves with the support of their schools. Over 400 children and their parents join the parade.

The parade will start from outside Davenies School in Station Road and follows the main road through the town, over the railway bridge to the Council Green.

The parade normally includes Santa on his sleigh, a fire engine (subject to availability), brass bands and local dignitaries.
