Every year between September and November six miles of the front at Blackpool is lit up by lights of all types, from ordinary coloured bulbs through giant lamppost mounted displays to large free standing displays at the northern end of the prom.
The promenade was first lit up as a special event in 1912 to celebrate the first royal visit to Blackpool. With gaps for the first and second world wars the lights have lit up the autumn skies ever since.
This section of overhead lights is called the Sirens, where mermaids entrance the visitors and try to lure the ships that pass onto the rocks of the promenade.
