The National Feast of Lanterns – The Camping and Caravanning Club
The traditional National Feast of Lanterns will be held from 28 August to 1 September 2014 thus bringing the camping season to a close as campers gather round the campfire with their old lanterns to mark the end of the camping year.
Lighting up is still a key tradition however and members now decorate their units with everything from tea lights to generator-powered fairy lights creating beautiful street scenes. An annual themed Mardi Gras parade is also held, plus a Club pennon parade where Regions, Sections and DA’s join together to show off their colours in the final arena prior to the closing ceremony.
