In pictures: Lincoln lantern parade and nativity

This story is over

A twinkling trail of paper lanterns flitted their way through Lincoln High Street and up Steep Hill on the evening of Thursday, December 17.

The children of Westgate Academy ended their traditional lantern parade with a nativity play on Castle Hill, creating a wonderfully festive event for all the family.

People of all ages gathered for the parade, surrounded by Christmas lights and the looming cathedral.

There are still plenty of festive events for the family to enjoy this Christmas. Check out The Lincolnite’s list of top events in the city.
