URP art group, LGBT group and BBO participants got together to take part in Blackpool’s annual Lightpool Festival.

Thousands of people lined the trams lines and gathered on the comedy carpet to take part in the free family event.

The art group made huge glow in the dark letters that read BLACKPOOL as they paraded down the tram lines from Central Pier to the Comedy Carpet.

The LGBT group followed behind them with their banner and decorated their faces in glow in the dark paint.

The BBO participants and manager supported Phil and Alex the directors of the Lightpool event. Wayne Harrison in particular shone on the night and continued to support the festival on Friday and Saturday.
