It’s beginning to feel a lot like Lanimers!
Tonight’s Fifth Illuminated Lanimer Winter Parade will see over 20 individual groups / band / performers take part in our biggest Winter Parade yet!
6 of our fantastic Lanimer Lorries from our fabulous 2019 Lanimer Day Procession will return, with a bit of added sparkle from some illuminations.
Please try to arrive early so you can explore the many shops and local business open as part of ‘Late Night Lanark’ with many offering special festive offers and treats.
Full details of the parade running order are available in the Lanimer Review Brochure – on sale at the kiosk in Tesco and Morrisons, as well as at the Tollbooth. All funds from the £3 cover price goes directly into next years Lanimer events.
