New Mills Lantern Parade - (26/09)

An amazing display at the New Mills Lantern Parade

What a great weekend its set to be with plenty of sunshine (or so the forecast tells us) and also the culmination of the New Mills Festival with the famous Lantern Parade.

Starting at the park below New Mills Central railway station the procession moves off at at 7:30pm, slowly winding its way through the Torrs, over the Millennium Walkway, towards Torrs Hydro before turning right over Torr Mill bridge and up towards the Rock Tavern pub before finishing on the Newtown recreation ground with a fantastic firework display and followed by the one and only Tony Audenshaw of White Van Man fame playing live out of the back of a Crabtree wagon - what more could you want on a Saturday evening.

Several thousand people are expected on the Lantern Parade and to watch White Van Man - so arrive early and enjoy a great New Mills evening.
