The council is looking forward to seeing thousands enjoy this popular family event which will include a parade, pre-parade entertainment and for the first time ever a mini funfair in Smithfield Square aimed at the younger audience.
Pre-parade entertainment commences at 6.00pm as they distribute giveaways to the crowd and provide festive characters around the city centre. On stage activities will also begin at 6.00pm with Lisburn Community Children’s Choir.
A lantern parade involving local schoolchildren and youth groups will parade through the city centre from approx. 7.00pm and arrive at the stage area around 7.15pm. Lisburn city centre will sparkle with over one million lights to mark the start of the Lisburn Castlereagh festive season.
