"Workshops on Sunday were at capacity, it was so brilliant to see so many people getting excited about the event", Hannah Merriman, Handmade Parade Co-Ordinator told the HebWeb.
There are still opportunities to make a lantern in Hebden on Wednesday 4-6pm at the Handmade Parade workshops, or at Tod High on Thurs 4-6pm. All welcome, entry by donation, suggestion £5 per lantern.
Student poi performers, torch lit belly dancers, fire professionals, amazing illuminated artwork, street bands and a night market will be taking place Saturday from 5.30pm onwards in Todmorden. Parade route map is here
