Illuminations illuminate Blackpool

Great news for the crew of the International Space Station tonight as they’ll get an extra treat as they whizz over the earth at 500 Kmh as they’ll witness the spectacle of the Illuminations being switched on. Since 1879 the six mile stretch of Blackpool (and Lytham/Bispham) have been brought to life with electric lights, and tonight, Mel B will be flicking the switch. There’s an online ceremony from 8.30 p.m. we’ll be tuning into right here in conjunction with MTV. And of course here are a few gratuitous images of Blackpool themed toys we want :

A LEGO IDEAS idea that never made the final cut
A 3D cardboard cutout model thats less than a tenner
Gibsons 500 piece jigsaw
