The dark grip of long wintry nights is broken by a flicker of light. Started in 1993, Burning the Clocks represents an alternative to the commercial Christmas. Thousands of people gather to make paper lanterns to carry through the city before burning them on the beach as a token for the end of the year and to greet the lengthening days.

The theme for the 2022 parade is WILD. A limited number of A2 posters are available to purchase through Same Sky's Crowdfunder
