On Friday 29th November the wintry skies around Newquay Cornwall will be lit up by a riot of colour from a magical lantern parade; the official ‘switch on’ of the town’s Christmas lights; and a glittering fireworks display over the harbour. Which is only minutes away from our self catering accommodation the Square and Tall House.
Over one hundred amazing creations and their makers will be setting off from Narrowcliff at 7pm for the parade to light up the skies, accompanied by a music from the Indian Queens Town Band and a local Samba Band. They will journey along Cliff Road and East Street where they will be joined by none other than Father Christmas and his real-life reindeer who will be entertaining children at the Hotel Victoria from 3pm to 6.30pm.
Joined by the town’s Mayor, the lantern parade will light up Bank Street & Fore Street, before reaching the bottom of Marcus Hill. Here the town’s Christmas lights will officially be switched on at 7.30pm to the sounds of glorious carol singing. The evening’s celebrations will then culminate with a festive fireworks display over the harbour at 8.45pm.
