Celebrate the end of camping season at annual NFOL
Although it has been a while since the first National Feast of Lanterns (NFOL), the event has continued to be a great way to celebrate the nation's favourite pastime. And this year is no different, with Houghton Hall's national camping rally, taking place from 27 to 31 August, planning to continue the tradition.
The first NFOL celebrated the camping season coming to an end and members would hold old lanterns while sitting around their campfires to light their meets.
Lighting up is still an essential part of the tradition, however now members have started to decorate their units to make each one unique and different from the others.
NFOL also hold an annual Mardi Gras concept parade, additional to the Club pennon parade where Regions, Sections and DA's join together to display their colour in the final area prior to the closing ceremony.
Throughout the week there is a whole host of free entertainment for all to enjoy - from live music to dog shows - guaranteed to provide something for everyone.
NFOL bookings are now being taken. For more information visit the NFOL 2015 website here.
