Held annually close to the long night of the winter solstice, this year the parade came of age as it made its twenty-first turn around town.

Lanterns were carried and worn by young and old from across the region’s school, businesses, political and community groups to the strains of bagpipes, drums and voices from the conservatorium.

With the 2015 theme of ‘Love a Parade – Festivals of the World’, the night was a huge success that wound up at Oakes Oval with festivities and fireworks.
