In pictures: Lincoln Lantern Parade 2016

This story is over

The annual Lincoln Lantern Parade returned to the city with a special starry night theme.

The Lincoln BIG Lantern Parade took place on December 15 and saw children from Westgate Academy walk their lanterns through the city from Cornhill to a nativity play in Castle Square.

This year, Andy Jupp of PaperStarlights, who is celebrating 20 years in business in 2016 and who is a long-time trader at Lincoln’s Christmas Market, made a special contribution.

Andy recognised his business’ milestone by donating 70 of his popular starlights to Lincoln BIG for the annual children’s Lantern Parade.
