This winter Bury welcomes a very special event as families and friends come together for Bury Lantern Parade on Sunday 26 November.
Bury town centre will host this special seasonal gathering welcoming children and families who have created lanterns in schools and workshops in advance creating magical lanterns. The theme for the special event will be wildlife – lanterns and puppetry will recreate a magical natural takeover of the town centre.
The event will run from 3.30pm to 6pm on Sunday 26 November bringing live music and some special surprises for our parade participants and their families.
The parade will depart The Met at 3:30pm, expecting to be at The Rock 3:50pm, then returning to Kay Gardens for 4:30pm.
