Blackpool Illuminations to make the seaside town glow

Blackpool will be brought to life for those on short breaks to the seaside town with one million light bulbs during the three-month long Blackpool Illuminations this year.

The lights keep the city burgeoning with fun and excitement right into the autumn, as many beach destinations begin to shut down for the winter period.

On Friday, August 31st the 10km stretch of lights will be switched on until Sunday, November 4th. There will be every kind of light display you can imagine, including fibre optics, neon, lasers, floodlighting and searchlights, as well as an array of scenic designs and features.

Locally known as the Lights, the "greatest free light show on earth" has been a fixture on the Blackpool calendar since 1879.

Exactly who will switch on the lights this year will remain a mystery until close to the event, but it has been confirmed that X Factor winners Little Mix will be performing at the opening event, alongside Amy McDonald and Lemar.
