Nothing heralds the Christmas season quite like the warm glow of festive lights in Truro.
Truro City of Lights 2013 will see Truro kick off the Christmas festivities with a parade and Christmas lights switch on.
The annual event encompasses some of the best music, art, dance and as the name suggests, light!
The festivities will start from 5.45pm with the parade starting at 7pm. The streets will be jam packed with people trying to catch a glimpse of the lanterns made by local schools.
The event also marks the start of Truro's late night shopping for Christmas, so the whole city will be alive with the festive flare.
Our advice is to get there early to find a good spot to watch the parade from.
