Mousehole Christmas Lights
Started in 1963, the small village of Mousehole, on the western side of Mount's Bay has lit up the harbour with a display of lights. Over the years these have increased and grown in size and are now a major attraction in themselves with people coming from far and wide to view them every night.
There are now over 60 displays using over 7000 bulbs!
They are switched on around the second weekend in December, illuminating the village until early January. However each December 19th the lights are turned off to remember the brave men who lost their lives when the Penlee Lifeboat and the Union Star were lost in a storm on the Cornish coast in 1981.
Visitors coming to see the lights should be aware that they may have to park some way from the village and walk into Mousehole as the carparks fill up early.
