Pictures from the Tales Told Festival Lantern Parade

Some pictures from the Tales Told Festival Lantern Parade on 17th June.  This was a special community event designed to bring people together and celebrate Aireborough and summer, organized by community arts company JP Productions.  Fireworks were by award winning Optimum Fireworks.

The lanterns arrive that had been made during the week long Tales Told Festival

And off we go, the rain barely holding off - booms sound around the Guiseley Gap

An excellent display is enjoyed by those close, and for miles around

The vibration of the moist air by the energy of the fireworks releases water vapour in a mist across the landscape. Party’s end and a lot of people feeling more positive about the place they live.

Please note – permission was sought from the landowner via FOPP for this special community enhancing event.   Care was taken to advertise the event in advance, and warn local people with livestock in the area.  Advice was taken on the ecology. The event was risk assessed and insured.  The event was privately funded.
