Truro City of Lights
5:34pm 19th November 2014
25,000 people fill the streets of Truro for the annual City of Lights parade.
The event which for many marks the start of Christmas preparations sees schoolchildren, youth groups and other organisations weave their way through the streets with glowing lanterns.
This year the theme is heroes and in particular honouring those who formed part of the World War One effort.
Project and Education manager Helen Reynolds told Pirate FM: "It's grown each year. It's really bringing Truro back to its community. We have around 25,000 people come to the parade and a thousand people in the parade and it's magical. It's the start of Christmas for many, many people.
"It's about remembering those ordinary people who were put in extraordinary circumstances in World War One so we've got Land Girls, a carrier pigeon, all those sorts of thing, that aren't necessarily the first things that you think of."
The event is no profit making and this year has set up a crowdfunder page to help. You can get more details on who's taking part and what's on where here
