Lantern Parade Newmarket Saturday 9 December

Don’t miss the Lantern Parade along Newmarket Hight Street today as part of the Love Newmarket Winter Wonderland.

Where: Newmarket Clock Tower

When: 4pm Saturday 9 December

On the weekend of 18 and 19 November Newmarket Creative Makers hosted open lantern making workshops in Newmarket. Local residents got creative by adding to giant puppet lanterns and making their own. Visitors helped decorate the giant nut cracker, sleigh and reindeer that will also be part of the Christmas parade.

Councillor Robert Nobbs, chairman of the council’s leisure services committee, said: “It was absolutely brilliant. It’s the most productive and creative workshop that we’ve had.”

If you joined in don’t forget to arrive early and join the parade yourself!
