Families and shoppers gathered to watch the magical procession as it set off from Bishop Street car park on Friday evening.

The parade created a whir of colour and music as it wound its way through Pump Street, Ferryquay Street, Shipquay Street and Castle Street, ending up at Harbour Square at the back of the Guildhall.

Here the performers gathered in a circle to entertain those who had braved the sub-zero temperatures to follow the event.
