Thanks to the Coastal Communities Fund, alongside further investment from Blackpool Council LightPool is back for 2016! LightPool 2016 is not just a projection show it is a festival consisting of many elements including LumiDogs.

Lumidogs culminates in an Illuminated dog walk with a star studded cast of special guests including Lucy Heath and Trip Hazard who were finalist from 2016 Britain´s Got Talent ´Crufts meets Cabaret´. The action takes place in St Johns Square from 6pm on Sunday 30th October.


LumiDogs was first staged in 2014 and is back by ´pup´ular demand for 2016. This year it will be bigger and better. If your dog lights up your life this is your opportunity to really show them off in true Blackpool Illuminations style. On Sunday 30th October an illuminated parade will take place in St Johns Square for all participating LumiDogs. To take part FREE workshops will take place to create a costume for your pooch. There will be a great team of people to assist you in creating the costume, materials and light are provided. So if you fancy dressing up your dog as a unicorn, balerena, ballroom dancer, cowboy, aeroplane book yourself on a LumiDogs workshop. During the LumiDogs parade there will be a competition, prizes and celebrity guests from 'Funny Girls' and a very special celebrity canine guest and their owner.
Places for the FREE workshops are limited so book quick to participate in the parade.
