Whether you’ve got your lanterns ready or you’re excited about watching the magical glow of the beautful lanterns, you won’t want to miss Caerphilly’s infamous River of Light Lantern Parade this year. Especially, as this simply fabulous festive parade ends with a wonderful firework display that lights up our fantastic Caerphilly Castle!
The parade starts at Caerphilly Train & Bus Station Park & Ride, then flows through the town to the rear of Caerphilly Castle (Crescent Road)
Participants will be accompanied by Samba dancers, Jazz bands and dancers creating a sea of colour through the town. Bring your lantern along and take part in this annual event.
Enjoy some FREE family fun time and bring the children along to make a festive lantern ready for the Lantern Parade. The workshops will be an enjoyable experience for the young and old, children can release their creative abilities and adults get the chance to behave like children and really get stuck in!
