206/365 Lantern Parade

Every year, on the last Friday in November there is a lantern parade in Devizes, led by Father Christmas. Children from all the local schools make their own lanterns and as long as they have a parent with them they can join the parade. Usually the parade just goes around the town and back to the Market Square, but this year, in order to celebrate the 200th birthday of the Kennet and Avon Canal, they also walked via the Wharf, and sang "Happy Birthday" to the canal.
Once back in the Market Square the town Christmas lights were turned on.
