Catch The Light lantern parade returned to the Bournville estate on Saturday.

People of all ages made and created spectacular displays using traditional willows and also from recycled materials.

This year's theme was called Go Create, designed to encourage families, friends and neighbours to get involved in having fun and making their lanterns together.

The parade attracted more than 300 people who marched and danced with Bristol Samba Band and later enjoyed a firework display from Firemagic.
