More about Ride the Lights

Enjoy the Lights and promenade from Starr Gate to Bispham – while it’s closed to traffic for one night only. Come along on your push bike or on foot for an evening of fun in the Lights! It’s the Tuesday evening before the big Switch On.

Literally tens of thousands of people turn up, dressed in all kinds of trimmings, lights, costumes and fancy dress (or maybe not!) for an evening of great family fun on the sea front.

You’ll find all the latest updates there and lots of great photos to see too. Here’s a video of what you can expect!

  1. We live in Lowestoft across the other side of the country. We are coming to Blackpool for the excitement of the lights in October. My wife is registered blind but can’t wait to get there. We have not been to Blackpool for a number of years and can’t wait. We are planning our days out already. Let’s hope everything starts to get back to normality soon.
