Matlock Illuminations, Boat Parade and Firework Display

Plus Bullring Shopping Centre

The highlight of this holiday is the Matlock Illuminations and upon arrival there is entertainment such as juggling and fire eating. At 8pm there is a spectacular parade of illuminated and decorated boats on the River Derwent. Each boat is adorned with thousands of lights and as darkness falls the boats disappear into the blackness below, leaving the models apparently gliding above the water. After the parade the night is rounded off with a firework display.

We also enjoy the Peak District on our way home on the Sunday.
