Tony explained: "Our work this year with the Truro Historical Project is a timely opportunity for City of Lights to come full circle. The historic fabric of the town was the focus for the first City of Lights, and Truro has continued to be our inspiration ever since. This is a fantastic opportunity for us to come together and explore the events and people that make our town."
A total of 20 schools were involved in creating and carrying lanterns for this year's parade. There was no big finale this year, but an even spread of entertainment throughout the city.
it was the biggest turn-out since the City of Lights began and layers of sparkle and sound were added to the evening with Samba bands, musical groups and a host of colourful dance troupes.
City of Lights is a non-profit making project led by a voluntary group of artists, organisations (including The Works Dance & Theatre Cornwall, Kernow Education Arts Partnership, Truro School of Samba, Cornwall Music Service, Truro City Council, Event Cornwall and Devon & Cornwall Police) and freelance practitioners.
