Blackpool Illuminations (Annual)

The world famous lights are switched on each year about early September for 2 months when the Promenade is transformed to a colourful wonderland. Many visitors plan their break around this time and the lights attract millions of people.
The lights are themed and they are used on the many buildings lining the Prom. From the alien and spaceship inspired Welcome Arch, move on to jelly monsters, tiffany lamps, party poopers, childrens cartoon characters, animals and just about everything you can imagine.
