They came ‘bark’ by ‘pup-ulour’ demand – and in much greater numbers.

For Blackpool’s Lightpool Festival literally went to the dogs on Sunday – illuminated dogs with attitude.

Following a series of workshops in various locations throughout Blackpool in September and October to help pet owners create their own illuminated doggy fashion items, a parade was held as part of this year’s festival, as it was last year.

And beloved pooches looked spectacular as they took part in a mass illuminated dog-walk through the resort.

Following the parade, there were some canine special guests at a staged event in St john’s Square.

Headlining was Trip Hazard from Britain’s Got Talent as Crufts meets cabaret.

Tonight sees LED drummers, Spark! in a unique, captivating and outstanding show. Exclusively to LightPool, the third year Musical Theatre Degree students from Blackpool & Fylde College have created a bespoke new show. Starting at 9.30pm, the event starts at the Comedy Carpet and moves to St John’s Square for the finale.
