You might have seen that the road closure boards are going up again around the route – the Bedminster Winter Lantern Parade is on!
The big day is Saturday 19th January 2019, and it will be exactly as you expect with 1 small, teeny-tiny difference: we’re changing the start time of the event.
We’re pushing back the whole thing by 1 hour.
Why are you doing that?
Good question. The reason for the later start is because we’ve passed mid-winter already, so the evenings are getting lighter, and we want to make sure all the amazing lanterns look their absolute best.
So what are the new times for the Parade?
Road closures will start at 4pm, with the on-street entertainment starting at about 5pm.
The Parade itself will start at 530pm, following the usual route, and the fireworks will be set off at about 7pm.
You can read the full updated event information when you have a moment, but in the meantime make sure you’ve changed the time in your phone, diary or on you wall calendar.
Love from the #bemmylanterns team
