Illuminated Tram Parade

It’s back! Your favourite FREE night out at the Blackpool Illuminations – it’s the Illuminated Tram Parade!

Illuminated Tram Parade

Wednesday 27 October 2021

Central Promenade, 5.30pm

Back by popular demand and for one night only!

See Blackpool’s unique fleet of illuminated Heritage Trams travel in convoy along the promenade in an evening of celebration of light!

The trams will leave from outside Blackpool Pleasure Beach at around 5pm. The rest of the procession will join them at Central Pier from approximately 5.30pm. It’s a truly magical Illuminations experience!

Featuring at the Illuminated Tram Parade…

This year, the illuminated tram parade features a battleship, trawler and Great Western train travelling in convoy.

They’re joined by the high-impact drumming and superb choreography of the Spark! LED drummers, Lumidogs and a cast of illuminated giant puppets. Plus magical lanterns and all of YOU dressed in your own lights!

A show not to be missed and a sight you’ll never forget. When the fleet of illuminated heritage trams take to the tracks in convoy – it’s a celebration of light and an amazing sight to see.

The Illuminated Tram Parade is a relatively new event, part of the Lightpool Festival. In only a couple of years it’s become a firm favourite with young and old alike.

These fab photos from the event are with thanks to our friend Barrie C Woods.


But you WILL be able to travel on one of these beauties when they resume their normal Illuminations Tours service after the parade has finished. Catch your Illuminated Tram Tour from the special tram stop opposite the Pleasure Beach.
