Brixham Kicks off Christmas in Style

Live music at the Harbour

Brixham celebrated the annual Lantern, Lights and ‘luminations parade on Saturday evening and thousands flocked to the centre of town to enjoy the precession.

Hundreds took part showing off their home made lanterns and bringing a magical feel to the town, lighting up the streets on their way. There were bands playing in the streets, happy smiling faces all around, street entertainers, food stalls and gifts a plenty to keep all the crowds entertained while people either grabbed a mulled wine or a warm coffee from cafes such as The Bay Coffee Company.

An exciting atmosphere could be felt in the air and a group of do gooders were even handing out free presents to people in random acts of kindness. Making the evening extra special.

After the parade, the annual switching on of the lights to large cheers and then the finale, the fireworks display. Unlike the previous 2 years, the temperature wasn’t as cold, and standing by the water admiring the intensity of the colour and the sound of a breathtaking display capped the evening off perfectly.

I have lived and worked in Torquay my whole life and love Torbay. I worked as a broadcaster on Music Mill FM and Torbay Sound, But have devoted time to our little boy. I co-owned my own Disco company, and love to travel. Although traveling is my hobby, there's nothing better than returning home to Torbay, back to gorgeous views and that lovely sea air.
