A Magical Evening

Last night’s Sharrow Lantern Carnival was a magical evening. The lanterns were created by local people in a series of workshops during February and March leading up to the big event.

Everyone gathered at Mount Pleasant Park and waited for the Sheffield Samba Band to lead the procession.

We followed a parade of magical lanterns that ranged from small stars, hats and mushrooms to giant unicorns and even a fire-breathing dragon.

The route wasn’t long, but at samba pace it was dark long before we reached our final destination. The darkness of the cemetery was the perfect backdrop for the lanterns and some fire spinners.
