Community 1st Cornwall was once again proud sponsors of this year’s Truro City of Lights festival which took place on 14th November.
The community saw a dazzling display of handcrafted paper and withy lanterns float through the streets of Truro, made and carried by professional artists, Cornish school children and local community and youth groups.
There were over 10 giant lanterns in this year’s City of Lights procession on the theme of ‘Kings and Queens’, and over 750 children and young people created their own lanterns for the event.
The event also included the official switch on of Truro’s Christmas lights, plus music and dance from Truro School of Samba and other local bands, and attracted an impressive turnout of local people.
Community 1st sponsors the landmark event every year and sees it as a fantastic opportunity to bring the Truro community together and light up the streets of Truro during the festive season.
