Parade goers illuminating, glowing and shining bright

CHARLTON Esplanade was lit up with the cheery illuminations of lanterns made by community groups, businesses and school kids.

The sound of bagpipes accompanied the several hundred parade goers who walked with flair throughout the almost hour-long parade on Saturday.

The closed-to-traffic strip between Main and Zephyr Sts allowed 2015 Illumination Parade and Concert spectators to enjoy the spectacular at a close distance, but the fun did not end there.

An audience at the Seafront Oval enjoyed glow stick fun, live performances and food and drinks.
