Editorial Correspondent 23rd Nov, 2021 Updated: 23rd Nov, 2021

 

Leamington’s ‘Lantern Parade’ 2021 is all back with eye-catching decorations and people switching to the inspirational home theme of Jephson Gardens. The parade is organized before Christmas where this UK town located south-east of Birmingham lights up the whole town in bright lights. The parade is inspired by the historical event known as ‘The Lights of Leamington Event.’ It is known to light up the Jephson Garden from 1951 to 1961. The event is unique because the people residing in the town showcase their homemade paper lanterns. These lanterns are used to light up the Pump Room Gardens.

This year’s Lantern Parade event is organized by the BID Leamington with the collaboration of small businesses. The event attracts many customers because of the involvement of many local businesses. Moreover, it will give people the time and space to know the businesses in their city better. This event officially started in the year 2010, and from that time, it has brought together many companies and residents to decorate their town creatively.

Avail Free Lantern Making Workshops

As Lanterns are major attractions of this event, people can attend the free lantern-making workshops in November to make thousands of lanterns with the help of paper and withy. The workshops are held on Sundays to join them on November 21 and December 5, 2021, ahead of the parade. In the words of Executive Director of the BID Leamington, Stephanie Kerr, “Our group loves holding the Lantern Parade ahead of Christmas to bring people together and illuminate the whole town that will attract many visitors to the town. It is a wonderful and amazing sight to see so many beautiful lantern designs. So, we are hoping to see something special again this year.”

Creating Beautiful Experiences For Residents And Visitors

The event will kick start on December 5, 2021, at Royal Pump Gardens in Leamington. The collaboration with local businesses this year will help them thrive and bring the artistic side of the

people out. The word for the Lantern Parade is officially out, and the city is looking forward to creating a beautiful and memorable experience for the visitors.

The Jephson Garden will be illuminated this year as the parade will be diverted to the place from where it started. There will be illuminated installations, local businesses showcasing their products, and performances will be held by the local artists. Here, the people in the parade will also be meeting Santa’s reindeer and finally come to the Royal Spa Brass Band. The band will organize the Christmas Carols on the steps of the Town Hall.

Moreover, the Lantern Parade is for making beautiful lanterns but to help the families in need before Christmas. The toys are collected for the local children whose families cannot afford the Christmas celebration with great pomp and show. The local people donate toys, but the toys must be new because these gifts will be distributed among local children on Christmas Eve.
