TIDE OF LIGHT 2016 - Worthing's Free Community Firework Festival and Lantern Parade
Raising funds for the Children's Parade and fireworks this year on the 5th November. Please help us by donating to make this the best event yet.
Welcome to the amazing Tide of Light Children's Parade and Lions Firework Festival, taking place on Saturday 5th November in Worthing Town Centre. This is a free to attend workshop, parade and fireworks evening provided for the lovely residents of Worthing.
Who are we?
This event is joint run by Worthing Lions Charity and Bartie Presents and are aim is to bring you the best free family event we possibly can.
What is the plan?
This year we are running free crafting sessions from the Pavilion Theatre on Worthing Seafront where children can then join the parade through town. We will be helping children to make fabulous lanterns to join the parade which will be supported by local samba bands, circus performers and musicians. Our vision is to make Steyne Gardens into a Wild Garden for the children to walk through, creating a magical parkland setting full of lights, installations, performers and more. South Street will then come alive with the best local musicians, dancers and performers. From the end of the pier an incredible firework show will top the bill. This event is a chance for the local community to join together in the run up and on the night, in a free to attend family friendly event for all.
We have grown massivly since 2013 and that is thanks to the positive response of local families who have embraced the event. The parade and fireworks festival has grown from a couple of thousand to over 20,000 Worthing families and beyond taking part.
With so many people coming into the town we have a priority to make the event safe to attend and take part in. This incurs some challanges for us and infrastructure costs increases is a massive issue.
We are asking for funds to make the whole event a real blast and make you proud of your town.
