I then had a quick change into the lantern lady! This year we kept the lanterns plain and I think they looked really beautiful coming down Staithe Street. This is the main shopping street in Wells and it is really narrow, heading down towards the quay. It looked magical with fire breathers, Tricks and Sticks drumming and the lanterns all parading towards the sea for Father Christmas's arrival.
Booom! provided some topclass fireworks for the crowds and then they all headed off to meet Santa. I snuck off home at this point, it had been a very busy day!
