The Annual Festive Lights; Lantern Parade and Grand Switch on event is organised each year by the Festive Lights Committee – a group of volunteers who are passionate about making Fleetwood shine brightly during the festive period.
This is a wonderful community event that engages with young people and their families inviting them to take part in a Parade that follows on behind the magnificent Fisherman’s Friend illuminated tram and The Old Boys Band. The children proudly carry handmade lanterns that have been made in workshops both in school and at community events. The parade culminates with the big switch on event where a local school performs Christmas Carols.
Supported by Fleetwood Town Council; the committee work tirelessly with local businesses and key stakeholders to organise fundraising activities and events to help fund our beautiful displays. These include: – 5 Large trees; Lamp post decorations along Lord Street, Poulton Street and North Albert Street and also the beautiful festoons that decorate the Mount Pavilion.
