MARY St glittered ever more brightly tonight during the first ever Gympie Gold Rush Twilight Lantern Parade.

Classic Cars, fairies, pipe bands and marching cadets all made their way down the main street adorned with twinkling lights and all the pomp and ceremony due for Gympie's annual birthday celebration, as around 3000 people lined the streets to watch.

Paper lantern creations were a highlight with scores of school children escorting the elaborate creations down the street with cogs and wheels sparkling with the light of LED fairy lights.
