Thousands of people are expected to descend on Truro on Wednesday night for the City of Lights Parade.

200 packs of tissue paper, 400 rolls of masking tape and 400 candles have gone into making the lanterns for what is the area's biggest night of the year.

This theme for 2013 is 'Expect the Unexpected.'

Children from Archbishop Benson School are among 750 taking parts in the parade.

Teacher Mark Thomas tells Pirate FM they have made the Starship Enterprise: "It's great for Truro to have something like that whereas in the past, perhaps we've been a bit jealous of Helston and Padstow, we've finally got our own. For the children to be part of it from the beginning of making the lanterns, right through to parading through town proudly with them, it's an amazing experience."
