Newlyn Harbour lights grand switch on!





 



 


Harbour offices all set for the Christmas lights switch on tonight...


while the remainder of the fleet get ready...


to take ice....


familyand friends wave them off for their their final trips of the year...


as the light fades...


the AA is the last to leave the port...
 


then it's all eyes on the programme of events for the night... 


with local school choirs and Penzance Silver Band...


providing the entertainment hundreds of visitors...


as the lifeboat uniquely delivers Father Christmas safely ashore...


and everybody waits for the big switch on...


and the fun to begin...


with a grand firework display...


to entertain...


and thrill the crowds...


ona calm and thankfully dry evening...


with the harbour lit up...


it's business as usual for some of the fleet as the Asthore makes the first landing of Cornish sardines for the night...


under the warm glow...


of the harbour lights...which will stay on until twelth night...


right around the harbour...



don't forget it is Mousehole's turn to on Saturday night!
