They wound their way slowly along the promenade from South Shore to North Pier and then slowly went back again. The promenade was PACKED with people enjoying it, the parade led by the Spark! drummers.

Featuring the battleship HMS Blackpool, the lottery funded Western Train, the Fisherman’s Friend Trawler. They set off in convoy from the Pleasure Beach Heritage Tram Stop, travelling along the tramway through the illuminations before returning to terminate at Blackpool Pleasure Beach around 75 minutes later.

The parade slowed as it approached Blackpool Tower for an unmissable photo and video opportunity.

Once the parade was over, trams returned to Pleasure Beach to continue with the standard non-bookable illumination tours from Blackpool Pleasure Beach tram stop.
