SCORES of people lined the streets of Camborne on Thursday for the annual children's lantern parade.

Lanterns of all shapes and sizes, including a giant jellyfish, seahorse, penguin and a pirate ship were paraded through the streets of the town.

All made by staff and pupils from local schools, the eye-catching lanterns lit up the night sky bringing festive cheer to the area.

The parade left from St Meriadoc Infant School and was led by Father Christmas, followed by hundreds of school pupils.

It all culminated with music provided by Truro Pipes and local band Proper Job.

Carols were sung under the glow of candlelight at Camborne Centenary Church at 7.30pm.
