Newton Abbot Lantern Parade

Newton Abbot town centre was bursting with excitement on Wednesday 13th December thanks to the lantern parade in the town.  Approx. 200 pupils from Bearnes, Wolborough, All Saints, Decoy, Bradley Barton, Haytor View, Highweek & St Joseph’s Primary Schools took pride in parading their colourful Christmas lanterns through the streets of Newton Abbot towards the Clock Tower.  The theme this year was ‘Into the Deep’ and the lanterns varied from fish and dolphins to seahorses and whales, it truly was a ‘sea’ of colour.  A big thank you to local artist Tony Gee and other members of the Creation Myth Puppets who were able to make this fantastic event possible once again, working in partnership with Newton Abbot Town Council.
