Cornwall's Christmas Light Switch-ons 2018
The holidays are coming, holidays are coming! Our streets will soon be scattered with sparkly lights and the count down to Christmas is on, I am so excited Foxy friends! Around our Cornwall caravan parks there are lots of festive celebrations to look forward to starting with the Christmas light switch-ons!
Here is my guide to the Christmas light switch-ons near our Cornwall holiday parks.
Helston - Friday November 30th
The light switch-on near Tolroy Manor Holiday Park will be full of entertainers, Santa’s grotto, Penny Red’s Pony Rides and a variety of food and craft traders - perfect for Christmas shopping!
Looe- Friday 7th December
Home to Trelawne Manor Holiday Park, the beautiful town of Looe will be full of festive cheer with a lantern procession setting off from East and West Looe then heading to the Quayside Centre for the light switch-on and carol singing.
Newquay - Friday 30th November
Newquay's Christmas festival will be a spectacular start to the festive period and is set to be bigger and better than ever. At 5pm you can enjoy live music and entertainment including fire breathers, choirs and dancers. From 6.30pm the lantern parade will begin, followed by the light switch-on with some special guests and bringing the evening to an end will be a spectacular firework display exploding over the harbour.
St Ives - Saturday 1st Dec
Just a few miles from St Ives Holiday Village, you can enjoy the St Ives lantern parade sing and dance the way into Royal Square, accompanied by the drums of Celtic Samba ready for the countdown for the light switch-on.
Truro - Wednesday 21st November
The famous City of Lights lantern festival kicks off the festive season in style in Truro, with a dazzling procession of willow-stick and tissue lanterns which are handmade by artists, schools and community groups. Alongside this is a feast of music and dancing including brass bands, drums and the samba.
