Scenes From FOPPs 8th Lantern Parade 2021

Gathering in the Park newly decorated by local residents, with mince pies and entertainment from Mitch Oldham.

Setting off to a good, strong, drum beat from a ‘flash’ Samba band of volunteers.

The special ‘Guiseley’ Lanterns made for us in 2016 by Lucy Phillips are still going strong, with their range of 2021 lantern bearers.

The Parade is on it way to the Town Cross with lots of waves from pavements and houses, and careful marshalling.

Community Christmas Carols with Guiseley Brass Band and our three local Ministers from St Oswalds, Guiseley Baptists, and Guiseley Methodists

The end of another day in the history of the Park.

A thank you to all who organize and take part in this lovely annual event, the community involvement from so many different people make it a real ‘feel good’ occasion.
