and live on Freeview channel 276
The village, located on the Tower Headlands, will also include festive light installations and projection shows, themed log cabins with food, drink and gifts, artificial snowfalls, Christmas trees and festive tram rides.
It will also see a variety of themed children’s attractions, the return of the Star Flyer which, at 196ft tall, is one of Europe’s tallest swing rides, and exciting new thrill rides including a 100ft-long snow slide.
Christmas By The Sea will be complemented by a full Illuminations display along the seafront after VisitBlackpool announced earlier this year that the Illuminations would once again be extended by two months to run from September 1 through to January 1.
The staging of the village is in association with the Tourism Business Improvement District (TBID), Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Triangle Attractions.
Cllr Lynn Williams, Leader of Blackpool Council, added:
“Christmas By The Sea has established itself as one of the most popular events in our calendar, attracting visitors from far and wide who come to enjoy a unique Christmas experience. “Many of the attractions including the rink, projection shows, snowfalls and light installations will again be free to access, giving families the opportunity to enjoy a magical and memorable Christmas. “This year, we will be extending the opening hours for the rink giving even more residents and visitors a chance to skate in what is a wonderful seafront setting.”
