Blackpool Illuminations sees this seaside city of fun still buzzing with excitement and laughter long after other resorts have gone into winter hibernation.
At 10 kilometers long and using over one million bulbs the Blackpool Illuminations are an awesome spectacle.
Every year there is a Switch On concert with a celebrity to Switch On the Illuminations.
The Blackpool Illuminations consist of almost every kind of light display you can imagine: lasers, neon, light bulbs, fibre optics, searchlights and floodlighting. There are over 500 road features attached to lamp posts linked together with festoon lighting. Strings of lights along the structure of buildings pick out landmarks in luminous detail – you can always make out the Tower and the Pleasure Beach rides in this way.
Even the trams on which you can tour the lights are illuminated and decorated with specific themes. There has been a Wild West train tram, a Space Rocket and the Trawler.
