Synthetic Ice Skating Rink

One of the event's highlights is the enchanting synthetic ice rink, where you can glide gracefully on the ice without the need to bring your own skates. To reserve your spot on this popular attraction, simply head to the rink itself and secure your session. Skates will be provided, ensuring a hassle-free and memorable skating experience for all.

Simulated Snowfalls and Snow Cannons

Step into a winter wonderland as the event features simulated snowfalls, courtesy of enormous snow cannons located on the iconic Comedy Carpet. Feel the magic of snowflakes gently falling around you, creating a truly enchanting atmosphere reminiscent of a snowy Christmas Eve.

Christmas Chalets and Festive Treats

The charming Christmas chalets will make a return, housing various vendors offering an array of festive treats. From mouthwatering food options to unique trinkets and holiday gifts, you'll have the perfect opportunity to indulge in the joy of holiday shopping.

Impressive Illumination Light Installations

Blackpool's dazzling Illumination light installations will once again light up the night. In 2022, the seafront was adorned with colossal light-up baubles, and the iconic Tower building was transformed with mesmerizing light projections, creating a breathtaking spectacle that's not to be missed.

Festive Fairground Rides

Thrill-seekers will be delighted by the return of festive fairground rides, located in front of the Blackpool Tower. Last year, the event featured Europe's largest free-standing aerial ride, 'The Star Flyer,' offering adrenaline-pumping fun with panoramic views of the promenade.
