Did you see the fur-bu-lous pooches at Houndshill Shopping Centre, getting their gear ready for Lumidogs?

Missed it? You can still make a costume at home for your fur-baby (and yourself!) and join the Carnival of the Lights parade at Lightpool.

Don’t they look amazing, which one is your favourite?

Never Been to Houndshill Shopping Centre?

Well here’s our quick guide to what to expect!

Houndshill Shopping Centre is sandwiched between Blackpool Winter Gardens and Bank Hey Street (where the back door of Blackpool Tower is). A big, pay on exit, multi-storey car park is incorporated into it.

Inside, the shopping is all on one flat level with even tiled floors, so it’s perfect for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Along with the seating in the mall it’s ideal for anyone who isn’t too fit and healthy! It’s also a great place to visit when the weather is poor. With everything undercover you won’t get wet on rainy days.

Upstairs (up the escalator) are public toilets and the food hall. Take your pick from different food retailers and eat at one of the tables.

It’s at the right hand side of the external New Look entrance, opposite the Winter Gardens and behind the small surface car park near the Houndshill access ramp.
